"Sustainability is integral to our decision-making," writes owner-managed investment boutique CHOM Capital on its website; since its foundation, CHOM Capital has placed sustainability criteria at the heart of investment decisions.

For more than ten years, Sustainable Finance has been a central research topic at Frankfurt School of Finance & Management – underpinned by the establishment of the UNEP-Frankfurt School Collaborating Centre for Climate & Sustainable Energy Finance. Research findings are incorporated into teaching – for example in the Sustainable Finance track in the Master of Finance. CHOM Capital is now extending its commitment to Frankfurt School and launches the CHOM Capital Sustainable Impact Diversity Scholarship.

Martina Neske, Founder, Managing Director and Chief Financial Officer, CHOM Capital, explains: "We are convinced that resource-saving production cycles, sustainable consumption or fair labour conditions sustainably increase value. With our Sustainable Impact Diversity Scholarship, we want to support students who are also committed to sustainability concerns." The decision to establish the scholarship at Frankfurt School was an obvious one, she continues: "Research at the Green and Sustainable Finance Cluster, the Sustainable World Academy, advising on female finance projects in developing countries, or the new Sustainable Finance specialization in the Master's degree – Frankfurt School addresses different aspects around sustainability holistically in teaching, research, and advisory."

Angelika Werner, Vice President Strategic Relations at Frankfurt School, thanks CHOM Capital for its generous donation and the trust it has placed in Frankfurt School: "There are young talents who volunteer for a sustainability cause, such as environmental protection. Others have founded a startup that might be developing sustainable mobility concepts. Together with our partner and donor CHOM Capital, we support these students and meaningfully expand our diversity scholarship offerings. We appreciate CHOM Capital’s donation and thank Martina Neske in particular."

Match Funding Principle

Frankfurt School's Diversity Scholarship is based on the match funding principle: Frankfurt School doubles every donation from its own funds. Carsten Vogel, Development Director at Frankfurt School, says: "Strengthening diversity in the student body is our strategic concern. That is why we double all donations. Now we are expanding the portfolio – together with CHOM Capital. We thank CHOM Capital very much!"

Prospective students can apply for a diversity scholarship along with their application for a study place. Further information can be found here.
