About the
Investor Leadership Network

The Investor Leadership Network was launched at the 2018 G7 to facilitate and accelerate collaboration by leading global investors on key issues related to sustainability and long-term growth. As the leading network of investors taking action for people, planet and prosperity, the CEO-led group is composed of 14 global institutional investors representative of six countries, with over US$9 trillion in assets under management.

Operating as an open and collaborative platform, members pool resources, expertise, and networks to develop, promote and deliver action-based and scalable initiatives on major global issues such as climate change, equity, diversity and inclusion, and sustainable infrastructure. Every initiative is evidence-based, measurable, and drives macro change. Member commitment is leveraged through a central convening body, the Secretariat, that threads the needle among initiatives and tracks and reports impact.

The ILN benefits from the participation and support of various partners, including governments, foundations, nonprofits, multilateral institutions, and other industry bodies, while remaining fully autonomous.

Interested in collaborating with the ILN? Please do not hesitate to contact us.
