Turner Impact Capital has surpassed $1.5 billion in investment potential to address some of the country’s most pervasive social issues through real estate solutions. We seek to generate superior risk-adjusted financial returns by investing in urban markets with supply & demand mismatches of workforce housing, quality public schools and preventative care facilities, and a lack of institutional capital.
Gee Kim, a Principal at Turner Impact Capital, is responsible for multifamily impact investments. A graduate of Stanford University, Harvard Business School and the Harvard University Kennedy School of Government, Gee sees tremendous opportunities to address affordable workforce housing needs in urban America. “With more than four million new renter households coming online over the next ten years, we see this new multifamily housing fund as an opportunity to make change on a significant scale.” To learn more about Gee and the team at Turner Impact Capital, click here.
"If one wants to cure a societal issue, then one needs a sustainable solution – a vehicle for change where one can provide sound financial returns for investors while at the same time having a positive impact on the world."

A MESSAGE FROM THE CEO
As history has shown, government and philanthropy can treat and respond to issues, but they often fail to create scalable solutions that stick. Too many urban public schools are failing to prepare our youth for higher education and/or sustainable 21st century careers; most urban communities lack quality, affordable housing and the accessibility to preventive healthcare is scant.
We at Turner Impact have one mission - to create sustainable solutions for many of today’s societal problems by developing and investing in community-enriching real estate in densely-populated, underserved communities. We seek “profits with a purpose,” recognizing the interdependence between the two and the central role that improving property and the lives of people can play in achieving superior risk-adjusted returns.
