Impact Investment: The Invisible Heart of Markets

09/16/2014

On Monday September 15, The Social Impact Investment Taskforce released its seminal report on impact investing titled "Impact Investment: The Invisible Heart of Markets." The Taskforce was set up under the United Kingdom's Presidency of the G8 and was led by Sir Ronald Cohen to bring together government officials, and senior members of the worlds of finance, business and philanthropy from G8 countries to stimulate the development of an effective social impact investment market.

The report has lays out 8 high level recommendations that it hopes will spur progress in impact investing. Citing a new millennial mindset that is increasingly blurring the lines between for-profit and non-profit work, it urges an increase in capital flows towards social impact entrepreneurs. To help move this forward, it recommends that government play a catalysing role in stimulating investment in social impact ventures in order to create the overall enabling environment needed for a 'Plan B' economy.
