Torsten Becker

Senior Portfolio Manager

Most investors nowadays look at environmental and social issues for image and compliance reasons. We do so to make a positive impact.

Torsten joined FS Impact Finance in February 2017.

As Senior Portfolio Manager he has been contributing significantly to the growth and development of the GLS Microfinance Fund. Since 2019 he has been increasingly involved in the development of new products in different SDG-related areas.

Torsten’s background is in development economics and renewable energy finance. Before joining FS Impact Finance, he was a Senior Project Manager at the Frankfurt School – UNEP Collaborating Centre for Climate & Sustainable Energy Finance, supporting financial institutions with their strategic transition towards “green finance”, and advising different types of investors on the feasibility and financial structuring of off-grid and energy access projects.

He was a lecturer for renewable energy project finance and a presenter and panellist at international workshops and conferences. Torsten has a Diploma in Economics from the University of Giessen and is a Certified Professional for Renewable Energy Finance (CPREF) of the Frankfurt School of Finance & Management.

Torsten spends his spare time reading smart books, following his favourite football club (Eintracht Frankfurt) and spending time with his family – in reverse order.
