Julia Oestreich

My goal is to equip our clients with suitable impact and finance tools in order to create solutions with real value added.

As a consultant at Beyond Philanthropy, Julia supports foundations, companies and private individuals in their effort to identify tailor-made financial instruments that help to solve social challenges in a sustainable way. With her experience in impact investing, pay-for-success schemes (e.g. Social Impact Bond) and strategic grant giving she advises clients along the whole investment cycle from project identification and due diligence to the management of the social investments.   

Prior to Beyond Philanthropy, Julia was the Impact Investment Manager at Scheuch Foundation where she was responsible for the selection and management of the impact investments as well as the implementation of incubation programs for social enterprises in the areas of education and conservation. Julia also co-founded the Austrian Impact Investors Stammtisch to connect established actors, foster strategic cooperation and engage new impact investors.   

Julia holds a bachelor´s degree in Cultural Anthropology and Political Science from the University of Hamburg as well as a master´s degree in Public Policy from the Willy Brandt School of Public Policy.
