Social Impact Investment Taskforce established by the G8

Sir Ronald is Chair of the Social Impact Investment Taskforce established by the G8. The Taskforce was announced by the British Prime Minister on 6 June 2013 at the G8 Social Impact Investment Forum in London. The aim of the Taskforce is to galvanise the development of an effective global social impact investment market, and to oversee delivery of initiatives announced at the G8 Forum. Each G8 country is represented on the Taskforce by a government official and a senior figure from the world of finance, business, or foundations. These representatives are supported by a national Advisory Board composed of country leaders from the field of social impact investment. The Taskforce is also being supported by four specialist Working Groups (WGs) focusing on priority subject areas: Asset Allocation, Impact Measurement, Mission Alignment and International Development.
