Editorial Reviews

Review

“In The Power of Impact Investing, Judith Rodin and Margot Brandenburg demonstrate that impact investing has the power to provide sustainable solutions to the world’s toughest problems. In addition to laying out the landscape of opportunity for different types of investors, they tell stories of impact investors who are creating social impact and of enterprises benefiting from the partnership. Both Judith and Margot’s voices are critical to this emerging field.”
—Jacqueline Novogratz, CEO & Founder, Acumen

About the Author

Judith Rodin is president of the Rockefeller Foundation, one of the world’s leading philanthropic organizations. Since joining the Foundation in 2005, Dr. Rodin has recalibrated its focus to meet the challenges of the 21st century. Prior to the Rockefeller Foundation, she was the president of the University of Pennsylvania and provost of Yale University. Dr. Rodin is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania and earned her PhD in Psychology from Columbia University. Margot Brandenburg was formerly senior associate director at the Rockefeller Foundation, where she managed its impact investing initiative. She is currently a fellow at the Nathan Cummings Foundation, where she is working on the launch of several social enterprise start-ups. She also chairs the board of Brooklyn Cooperative Credit Union and is adjunct faculty at New York University’s Stern School of Business. For more than 100 years, the Rockefeller Foundation’s mission has been to promote the well-being of humanity throughout the world. Today, the Rockefeller Foundation pursues this mission through dual goals: advancing inclusive economies that expand opportunities for more broadly shared prosperity, and building resilience by helping people, communities, and institutions prepare for, withstand, and emerge stronger from acute shocks and chronic stresses. To achieve these goals, the Rockefeller Foundation works at the intersection of four focus areas (advance health, revalue ecosystems, secure livelihoods, and transform cities) to address the root causes of emerging challenges and create systemic change. Together with partners and grantees, the Rockefeller Foundation strives to catalyze and scale transformative innovations, create unlikely partnerships that span sectors, and take risks others cannot—or will not.

The book is easy to read with minimal jargon and insights from compelling conversations with investors, intermediaries, and philanthropists alike. It also retains the research rigour in concisely surveying the impact investing landscape and its players globally.

For practitioners in the field, this book provides a broad update on current developments, and a generally optimistic view of impact investing's potential for putting markets to work for global good.

A guide for anyone from the novice considering diversifying their portfolio investments into areas more cause related to seasoned impact investors looking to broaden their network and for a global snapshot of the development of the investor sector as it stands today. Dr Rodin and Ms. Brandenburg are clearly knowledgable and passionate about their topic and firmly convinced of the potential for positive impact this asset class offers.
