“The 2022 list includes visionary changemaking fund managers who envision a new economy. These diverse trend-setters are designing solutions to create a just, inclusive economy for people and the planet…
The fund must meet at least three of the following four criteria:
Employ integrated capital
Use creative finance
Focus on social, relational, and ecological returns
Engage with ownership and governance for equity.”
“Transformative funds are disrupting the status quo addressing critical questions including: What is important about capital? Who decides where capital flows, how it is used and what outcomes it supports? How do we foster equitable and inclusive decision making that democratizes finance?
Transformative funds see capital as a tool amongst many to support a resilient planet and people.”
