Impact Investor Networks Collaborate to Tackle Covid-19 Fallout

By Abby Schultz

A broad group of impact investing networks supported by several foundations has created a coalition to leverage their combined expertise and capital, and to speed up the information flow on financing needs, to tackle many of the consequences that have surfaced from the coronavirus pandemic.

The Response, Recovery, and Resilience Investment Coalition (R3 Coalition), will “drive collaboration” among impact investors, and will seek to “identify opportunities where investment capital can be put to work,” says Amit Bouri, co-founder and CEO of the Global Impact Investing Network (GIIN), which is managing the coalition.
