New financial body for impact investing

A new independent institute that will make it easier for people to invest their money to benefit communities has been launched. The Impact Investing Institute will encourage savers to choose ISAs, pensions and savings products that can produce an additional social or environmental benefit.

The Institute will unite the UK National Advisory Board on Impact Investing (UK NAB) and the Implementation Taskforce on Growing a Culture of Social Impact Investing in the UK (Implementation Taskforce) and the initiative is being led by their chairs, Sir Harvey McGrath and Elizabeth Corley.

The Institute has broad backing across the financial services and social sector and will be supported by private firms and foundations alongside the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, the Department for International Development and the City of London Corporation.
