‘A fascinating blueprint for a hope-filled future underpinned by the social power of impact investing.’

Kristalina Georgieva, Managing Director, International Monetary Fund, Former CEO, World Bank Group

“For anybody who cares about practical solutions to solving the world’s most intractable problems and seeks an overriding narrative that links the kind of world we want to live in with a roadmap for how to get there, this book is essential reading.”

Nick O’Donogue on ImpactAlpha

“Impact’s launch comes as economies shut down by Covid-19 are trying to reopen, and conversations are happening about how economic measures should change going forward. The “forceful challenge” to capitalism and democracy that Sir Ronald describes in the book is accelerating, and his argument for a move beyond ‘selfish capitalism’ to ‘impact capitalism’ comes at the right time.”
