U.S. National Advisory Board on Impact Investing

The U.S. Impact Investing Alliance is the successor to the U.S. National Advisory Board on Impact Investing (NAB) which was part of the G7 Social Impact Investment Task Force. The Alliance seeks to build on the tremendous track record of the NAB and so many others in the field who worked tirelessly on important policy advances.

We owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to the members of the NAB for their efforts.
