Justina Lai

Chief Impact Officer

From a young age, Justina has felt a responsibility to contribute more to the world than she extracts from it. She went on to work and live in many different places, including Hong Kong, France, the UK and Rwanda. And she eventually came to realize that the best use of her skills and experience would be to seek ways to leverage investment capital to make a positive difference in the world.

Today, Justina leads impact investing at LNWM and our sister company Wetherby Asset Management, bringing to her work more than two decades of experience, boundless energy, passion and determination. Her focus: developing strategies that can help you and your family invest in creating meaningful social and environmental impact. Each of us has different types of capital, Justina notes: investment, philanthropic, intellectual, social, community. How to best bring all these forms of capital together to effect positive change requires strategic, long-term planning coupled with a deep understanding of impact issues and the rigor and discipline of traditional financial analysis.

”Our firm’s deep commitment to impact investing and to creating shared value for all our stakeholders offer a powerful platform for us to serve as thought partners for our clients, asking good questions, providing guidance and supporting sound strategic decision-making.”
