Key Takeaway

The future of work is here. To adjust, millions of people in the U.S. and around the world will need retraining, certifications and other support to reskill themselves for the many jobs for which demand still exceeds the supply of trained workers.

In an interview on ImpactAlpha’s Returns on Investment podcast, Social Finance CEO, Tracy Palandjian, discussed Social Finance’s latest innovation: Career Impact Bonds. The podcast highlights how Career Impact Bonds transfer career-transition risk from students to investors. The conversation also touches on how Career Impact Bonds extend the idea of traditional income-share agreements to include additional educational programs and wraparound support services.

Let’s take the risk away from the student and level the playing field so students only repay the debt when they get a job.
