Sir Ronald Cohen is an Egyptian-born British businessman and political figure. He is the chairman of the Global Steering Group for Impact Investment, The Portland Trust and Bridges Ventures. He has been described as "the father of British venture capital" and "the father of impact investing".[1]

Labour donor

Sir Ronald is notorious in the UK for bankrolling the neoliberalNew Labour” governments of Tony Blair and Gordon Brown and is believed to have donated up to £800,000 to the Labour Party.

Impact capitalism

Cohen is apparently a member of the executive committee of the International Institute of Strategic Studies, “a world-leading authority on global security, political risk and military conflict”.

These days Cohen is involved with Klaus Schwab’s World Economic Forum, whose website describes him as “a preeminent international philanthropist, venture capitalist, private equity investor, and social innovator, who is driving forward the global impact revolution”.

Sir Ronald tells us: “All big movements, including recent neoliberalism, were funded by philanthropists, and the same is becoming true of the impact movement. The Omidyar Network, Ford, Rockefeller, MacArthur, Kresge and Hewlett Foundation in the US; Europe’s Bertelsmann Stiftung in Germany and the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation in Portugal; Lord (Jacob) Rothschild’s family foundation, Yad Hanadiv, and the Edmond de Rothschild Foundation, in Israel; and Ratan Tata and the Tata Trusts, in India, have all supported the impact movement”.

He adds: “One of the most promising new family foundations is the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI). In 2015, at the age of 30, Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan announced that they plan to direct 99 per cent of their $45 billion wealth into CZI. Their goal is to make a substantial commitment to impact investing that is focused on ‘personalised learning, curing disease, connecting people and building strong communities’”.

Part of the Great Reset

Cohen approvingly quotes Megan Starr, the global head of impact for the arms-dealing Carlyle Group, when she remarked that “it’s no longer possible to generate high rates of return unless you invest for impact”.

He lists Goldman Sachs, “another big-name asset management firm that is involved in impact investing”, “Unilever, under the enlightened leadership of CEO Paul Polman”, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Accenture, Nestlé and Coca-Cola.

Cohen tells us that Bono, of U2 and Band Aid fame, has, through his Rise Fund, “become a powerful advocate for the use of impact investment”.

Cohen argues: “The fact is that our existing social contract has expired and we are now in the process of drawing up a new one in the form of impact capitalism”.

In other words, his impact revolution aims to save capitalism by reshaping it. It is part of The Great Reset.[2]
