Jory is the director of social finance and investment at the Inspirit Foundation. Since graduating from the Richard Ivey School of Business at Western University as the Valedictorian of his class, Jory quickly garnered a reputation as a next-generation leader in the impact investing field.

Under Jory’s leadership, YSI made its first six investments and maintained a 100% repayment rate to investors.
