Regulatory compliant marketplace company GATE Global Impact, which provides market infrastructure for the impact investing industry, formally announced the hiring of Leverage PR to serve as its national agency of record. The New York City-based company provides investors information and metrics to transact, settle and clear assets while delivering high standards of market transparency and security.
Austin-based Leverage PR, a full-service public relations agency in the financial services and financial technology industries, will lead GATE’s public relations efforts, helping to educate global financial leaders and the financial media on the benefits of GATE’s impact investing marketplace and their work with the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC).
“We needed an agency with a deep understanding of technology’s impact on emerging financial markets,” says GATE Global CEO Vince Molinari. “Having worked with Leverage’s team over the past year in the emerging crowdfunding industry, I gained an appreciation for their strong relationships with media and ability to execute.”
“The work that GATE is doing is saving and changing lives,” says Joy Schoffler, principal of Leverage PR. “When you look at the ‘impact’ of impact investing, you are not only helping people obtain a strong return on investment, you are also creating a social impact which has wonderful implications. Impact investing truly changes the world, but will never occur on a large scale without transparency and liquidity. GATE Global Impact is the missing piece of the puzzle that provides scalability—it is an honor to work with them and play a small part in helping those that are helping others.
