U.S. Impact Investing Alliance Launches to Scale the Practice of Impact Investing

The U.S. Impact Investing Alliance (“Alliance”) today announced the launch of its expanded network of impact investing leaders dedicated to advancing this growing market.

The Alliance was founded last year by representatives from philanthropy, business and finance to champion the potential of impact investing by increasing awareness of impact investing in the U.S., fostering deployment of and demand for impact capital across asset classes globally, and by partnering with policymakers and other stakeholders to build the impact investing ecosystem.

The Alliance is introduced today with a broadened mandate that includes advocating for a favorable policy environment, catalyzing the flow of impact capital and growing the movement of impact investing in the U.S. and globally.
