At iM Global Partner we are committed to our people and our community, putting our values into action to support initiatives and charitable endeavours with a positive social impact. In particular, we are keen to support and encourage the youth of today in their development and projects.
Sharing ideas, learning from others, seeking new opportunities – these are all key elements of our entrepreneurial spirit and the reason we offer learning opportunities for people at the start of their careers.
We firmly believe that first working experiences set the foundations, and often overall direction, for someone’s long-term career. This means that we are highly committed to providing opportunities that build technical and personal skills and most importantly offer real responsibility and ownership.
We currently have apprentices and interns working within our Research & Investment, Marketing, Finance and Asset Management teams. We are committed to increasing the number of these positions to at least 10% of our total workforce worldwide.
We believe that youth spearhead a society and are the symbol of the next generation. However, these citizens are sometimes vulnerable. Young people can often be the first victim of unemployment or precariousness. Our ambition is to participate in ensuring the future of young people, their social integration and their development in an increasingly complex world.
To this end, we have created the non-profit philanthropic endowment fund, iMGP Donations Fund – designed to increase the impact of our policy to support youth.
The primary objectives of the iMGP Donations Fund are the protection of youth and the support of educational, cultural and scientific initiatives aimed at young people, regardless of the country in which the group operates.
The French charity Linkee was set up to create a link between restaurants, food stores and those in need.
Many of the most vulnerable people in society, including many students, were hit hard by the crisis and are still struggling to get enough to eat. Linkee’s work not only reduces food waste, as they are recycling food that would normally be thrown out, but also provides a valuable service to the community.
iM Global Partner supports this initiative which is providing 150,000 meals per month to more than 20,000 French students.Visit Linkee

Vive le Jazz was created to promote young jazz musicians and to allow young people to have easier and cheaper access to jazz music. It organizes concerts, live events, conferences, and master classes around jazz.
As part of the association, the famous French jazz club “Duc des Lombards”, which has hosted many of the world’s top jazz musicians, has started organizing free jazz concerts on Monday or Tuesday evenings to promote young jazz musicians and attract a younger audience.
The Vive le Jazz association supports the club financially in these endeavors by paying for the musicians and their overheads.Visit TSF Jazz
The Hebe Foundation works with young people (typically age 13-20) to enable them to discover and use their talents, while building the positive character needed to sustain these talents and help others. They create inspiring, educational and fun projects such as ‘Junior Apprentice’, ‘Digital Disruptors’, ‘London’s Next Top Role Model’ and ‘Urban Debators’. These activities give young people the opportunity to gain transferrable skills that will benefit them across all areas of their lives and expose them to jobs and careers that they may not otherwise have access to or have considered a possibility.Visit The HEBE Foundation
Seeing and participating in theatre exposes us to different perspectives and worlds beyond our own, touches our emotions, boosts confidence, unlocks creativity and teaches valuable skills. Go Live Theatre Projects believes all children and young people should have the chance to experience these life-enhancing benefits, regardless of their background. But for many of them, physical, social and financial barriers stand in their way. The charity’s work is two-fold: by offering subsidised, supported trips to London West End theatre productions for families, schools and community groups and also by delivering educational workshops in schools and community settings across London.Visit Go Live Theater Projects
