About us

Mobilising capital for a sustainable future

Since establishment in 2015, over 60 investment organisations have collaborated to bring this vision to light through designing fit-for-purpose investment strategies; better organisational effectiveness and strengthened stakeholder legitimacy.

Led by Marisa Hall, Tim Hodgson, Roger Urwin and Paul Deane-Williams our global not-for-profit research and innovation hub connects our members from around the investment world to harnesses the power of collective thought leadership and bring these ideas to life. Our members influence the research agenda and participate in working groups and events and have access to proprietary tools and a unique research library.
