Brian Walsh

Head of Impact
Brian Walsh oversees impact for Liquidnet, a New York-based financial services company that uses technology and a trusted global network to make capital markets more efficient. As Executive Director of Liquidnet For Good, Brian is responsible for using the resources of Liquidnet to have a positive impact in the world. Liquidnet provides its employees with the inspiration and the opportunity to give back through local programs in the communities where the company has operations and through a groundbreaking partnership with the Agahozo-Shalom Youth Village (ASYV), an innovative home, community, and high school for orphans in Rwanda. Liquidnet is also focused on leveraging its expertise, core strengths, and knack for innovation to help make the work of the social sector more effective. Through a partnership with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation called Markets for Good, Liquidnet is learning how the social sector might better generate, share, and use data and information to improve decision making. Liquidnet is also partnering with major funders including the William & Flora Hewlett Foundation and the Ford Foundation on the Fund for Shared Insight, a multi-year, multi-million dollar program to improve the practice of philanthropy by helping staffed foundations be more open. Additionally, Liquidnet is working to accelerate the practice of impact investing through programs and partnerships that build the capacity of this emerging field. A regular speaker about philanthropy, impact investing, and corporate impact, Brian graduated from Georgetown University and previously provided strategic advice to philanthropically-minded companies and nonprofits. He currently is an adjunct professor in Georgetown University's Masters of Science in Foreign Service (MSFS) graduate program.
