Instead of Treating Society’s Ills, Bobby Turner Wants a Cure


January 28, 2016

Bobby Turner, principal and CEO of Turner Impact Capital, describes himself as an “evolving capitalist.” After achieving tremendous success as chairman and CEO of Canyon Capital Realty Advisors, Turner took the considerable skills and knowledge amassed in his career to create a business that tackles some of society’s most pressing problems. As he explains to Katherine Klein, vice dean for social impact at Wharton, doing good isn’t just the domain of philanthropists. Through impact investing, it is possible to turn a profit, satisfy stakeholders and raise up a community all at the same time.
