Karen Ng

Investment Management Director at Brightlight Group

Sydney, New South Wales

I believe in the power of capital to drive positive and sustainable social change. This has brought me on a journey from investment banking to venture philanthropy, and now to social impact investing. I am an investment professional with international experiences in investing in, managing, and incubating social enterprises and social investment funds.

I am currently working at Big Society Capital, focusing on the development of social investment solutions to provide more and better homes for vulnerable people, for example people experiencing homelessness, survivors of domestic abuse and people with disabilities. I am passionate about women's rights and refugee integration, and am on the Board of two London-based charities that address these issues. I also moonlight as a children's book writer, currently co-authoring Little Book for Big Changes, an activity book inspired by the UN Sustainable Development Goals (check it out on Amazon!).

I hold an MBA with Distinction from Oxford's Said Business School, and a BSc in Government and Economics from LSE.
