Who has the ability to really ‘move the needle’? In our first list of sustainable private markets influencers, we highlight 50(ish) individuals shaping the ESG and impact investing landscape.
We put this list together with two main aims. One is to give recognition to those spending time – going above and beyond – to further sustainability across wider private markets. The other is to pinpoint the individuals with the influence or wherewithal to truly ‘move the needle’ when it comes to the positive impact private markets investing can have on society and the planet.
This list is the result of extensive discussions with market sources; we did not take submissions. Instead, we sought views and recommendations from market actors across the ecosystem.
While 50 felt like a large number to begin with, it quickly became clear that we could double the length of the list and still have many worthy candidates to spare. With this in mind, we look forward to repeating the exercise in the near future. And, as always, we welcome our readers’ suggestions and feedback.
