This week, the Global Steering Group for Impact Investment (GSG), an independent multilateral catalyzing impact investment and entrepreneurship, awarded its 2017 GSG Honor for Impact Asset Owner of the Year to Reinvestment Fund, an OFN Member CDFI. Presented at the GSG Impact Summit 2017 in Chicago, the award honors asset owners—including institutional investors, philanthropies, high net-worth individuals, family offices, corporations, banks, governments, and development-finance institutions—directing their capital to impact.
Don Hinkle-Brown, President and CEO of Reinvestment Fund, accepted the award from the stage on Monday evening. During his remarks, which offered observations on impact investing and predictions for what’s to come, he said “After decades of effort and many false starts there is now a solid bridge to the capital markets for US community development finance organizations like CDFIs. This is just a beginning—and there are years of more work to do.”
Congratulations to Reinvestment Fund!
