Kimberlee Cornett, Director of Impact Investments, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation:
“As an impact investor eager to see more capital reach communities that have been structurally excluded from opportunity, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation is pleased to see ACLI and its members move decisively forward to bring more capital for housing and community development. We look forward to future co-investments with insurers that will give all Americans the opportunity to live their healthiest life possible.”
Roy Swan, Director of Mission Investments for the Ford Foundation:
"I am thrilled to see the American Council of Life Insurers expand their commitment to communities of color and closing the racial wealth gap. Impact investing is a powerful tool for business leaders to meet shareholder needs while advancing a more sustainable form of capitalism."
Priscilla Almodovar, President and CEO, Enterprise Community Partners, Inc.:
“The life insurance industry represents a unique, collective force for good in capital markets. I’m delighted to join in this conversation about how leaders across this industry can make strides in helping to close the racial wealth gap by investing in affordable housing across the nation. Creating and preserving affordable homes is the most powerful lever we have to improve the lives of lower- and middle-income families; we’re eager to explore how the life insurance industry can play a leading role in advancing the economic well-being of all Americans.”
Lisa L. Glover, CEO, Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC):
"We are excited to see ACLI and its members launch this initiative to invest in the well-being of families, communities and local economies. By assembling new capital for affordable housing and other critical local needs, ACLI can help bridge gaps in health, wealth and opportunity so that more people can thrive."
Rey Ramsey, CEO, Centri Capital and Chair of Centri-Tech:
“This is a historically significant moment for the affordable housing and community development moment. It is a rare occurrence when a large business sector comes together to support the fundamental needs of low and moderate-income people. The life insurance industry is uniquely positioned to deploy both its financial human and financial capital to a growing American housing crisis.”
