Social Impact Investment Taskforce Established By the G8 Hits the Ground Running

Sir Ronald Cohen, Chairman of Big Society Capital, reflects on the state of impact investing as it relates to the work of the G8's Social Impact Investment Taskforce.

"Impact investing has taken a great step forward in 2013. The debate is increasingly about how the market will take off, and less about whether it will. Last week over 400 impact investors from across the world gathered in London for the Global Impact Investing Network Investor's Forum hosted by the City of London Corporation. This was further evidence of the momentum building behind impact investment as one of the most promising tools for tackling social challenges across the globe."
