Brian Walsh, Liquidnet Markets for Good

Executive Director, Liquidnet For Good

Brian is passionate about the intersection of social impact and business value. He currently oversees the philanthropy program for Liquidnet, the global marketplace for institutional investors. In 2007 Brian helped launch “Liquidnet For Good,” the corporate social engagement program that leverages Liquidnet’s resources – including financial capital, human capital, creative capital and expertise – to create local and global social impact. Beyond extensive employee engagement programs and a comprehensive partnership with a youth village for orphans in Rwanda, Liquidnet For Good’s “Markets for Good” initiative applies the company’s core competency – using technology to make markets more efficient – to address inefficiencies in the social sector. Liquidnet is collaborating with others to effectively use the tools of philanthropy and impact investing to unleash more money for good.
