Creating a National Advisory Board in Peru – a Coalition for Impact Investment

Peru needs access to new and diverse forms of capital to finance its sustainable growth and development. Currently there is a dearth of available capital in Peru and other parts of Latin America. Moreover, the capital that does exist is provided through conventional, lower risk channels (i.e. chartered banks).  To resolve this gap and build a more sustainable economy, Peru would like to establish a National Advisory Board for Impact Investing. Successful NABs are member-based, registered associations with representation and leadership from all sectors including the public sector, corporations, investors, philanthropic and development organizations, civil society organizations, academia, businesses and entrepreneurs. NABs typically have a small management team or secretariat that supports a diverse elected or appointed board.
