“Impact investing is one of the most underutilized, but promising, tools we have for tackling our more intractable global challenges,” said Bannick. “The G8 recognized this by setting up the Social Impact Investment Task Force; and the United States, in particular, has extensive expertise and leadership to lend to this effort. We have assembled some of the most knowledgeable people in the country from a range of sectors; and, together, we hope to advance our collective understanding on how to promote the global market for social investment.”

In addition to co-chairing the NAB, Bannick serves as one of two U.S. representatives to the Social Impact Investment Task Force. His appointment and that of Don Graves, deputy assistant secretary for small business, community development and housing policy at the U.S. Department of the Treasury, was announced by Jonathan Greenblatt, special assistant to the President and director of the Office of Social Innovation and Civic Participation, at the Social Capital Markets Conference (SOCAP) in San Francisco on September 4, 2013.
