To reduce future confusion I think that ACE's charity evaluation criteria page should be edited to acknowledge the fact that ACE is increasingly open to 'hits based' charity recommendations, and rightly so: http://www.openphilanthropy.org/blog/hits-based-giving

I'm personally less sure if ACE is thinking about it or framing it in those terms.

In that case I think they should start thinking about it in those terms. :)

I'd personally disagree, but it's a good discussion to have either way.

As of December 2016, my impression was that ACE wasn't and hadn't shifted towards a hits based or more risk-averse approach. I don't know if this is because they already were more in that direction than Rob thinks, or because they didn't move to the hits based position Rob thinks they currently have.

[I worked for ACE on the board then as a researcher until December 2016. This is just my personal opinion.]
