To be the most impactful asset manager
Radical honesty, generosity, curiosity,
empathy, and integrity.
Rally Asset’s roots trace back to 2010 just three years after the phrase impact investing was first coined by the Rockefeller foundation. It was a nascent field in Canada and around the world, at that time.
The original founders of Purpose Capital, Karim Harji, Norm Tasevski & Assaf Weisz set out to provide impact consulting support to a group of social enterprises. They quickly recognized that a lack of capital was holding the sector back, despite the growing number of investors looking to deploy their capital in ways that prioritized financial and social impact.
In 2017, the firm was acquired by Upkar Arora, who after exploration of the impact space since 2010 identified the need to provide even broader and more comprehensive solutions to a wider range of investors than Purpose Capital had. Andrea Nemtin joined in 2018 as a Partner to help relaunch the company as Rally Assets, and to expand its product and service offerings to provide end-to-end impact investment solutions for asset holders. On August 30th, 2019, the firm became registered with the OSC as a Portfolio Manager. In September 2019, Rally received approval to operate in BC and Alberta, and submitted its application for approval in Quebec.
