GIIN appoints Peter Malik as director of membership

RELATED TOPICS​

The Global Impact Investing Network (GIIN) has appointed Peter Malik as Director of Membership. Malik will aid in shaping the strategic direction and growth of the GIIN’s global membership programs, which are a central component of the GIIN’s efforts to advance the field of impact investing.

The GIIN is a nonprofit organisation dedicated to increasing the scale and effectiveness of impact investing. It builds critical infrastructure and supports activities, education, and research that help accelerate the development of a coherent impact investing industry.
 
Malik comes to the GIIN from The Nature Conservancy, where he served as Managing Director for Corporate Engagements and worked to forge agreements with corporate partners. Prior to The Nature Conservancy, Malik served as Director for the Natural Resources Defense Council’s Center for Market Innovation, where his work centred on the formation of finance and business outreach efforts. He had previously served as Head of Emerging Markets Structured Credit Financing for JPMorgan Securities based in London, where he established a line of business that targeted young, medium-sized companies that lacked access to traditional capital markets.  He has held positions with other large institutions including Credit Suisse Securities and Central Europe Trust.
 
“Peter’s addition is a fitting capstone to the expansion of our management team as we prepare to guide impact investing into its next stage of growth and development,” says Amit Bouri, CEO and co-founder of the GIIN. “His long-standing commitment to positive change, his knowledge about environmental issues, and his experience at large financial institutions makes him a natural fit for our team. His talents are indispensable to our efforts to strengthen and grow our network of impact investors and accelerate the scale and effectiveness of the impact investing field as a whole.”
 
“I have known the GIIN for many years through my work in the financial markets and investing in the environment,” says Malik. “It is a unique organisation with an important mission and a strong track record of helping to drive more capital to impact investing. I look forward to playing a role in the very critical mission the GIIN has undertaken by further expanding the GIIN’s global membership. Thanks to the work of the GIIN, impact investing has advanced greatly over the last several years and we can confidently say that its best years are still ahead.”
 
In the seven years since its inception, the GIIN has raised global awareness for the field of impact investing and established unparalleled credibility in the market by building a network of investors and leaders, producing essential market research, establishing industry standards, and making resources available to advance the industry. Its network of more than 220 institutions in 32 countries includes financial institutions, family offices, individual investors, and fund managers.
