Responsible Investment Management and Advisory Services

About Us

Serving as a bridge between developed capital markets in the West and financial sectors in developing countries, we improve access to appropriate financial services for entrepreneurs at the bottom of the pyramid. By providing capital and advisory services, we support the expansion of viable financial service providers in all stages of development. Thanks to our network of regional offices and large team of experts with strong portfolio management skills, we are able to stay close to our investees. Due to the fact that we intensively promote social performance management, our investors receive both strong social returns and good financial returns on their investments with Triple Jump. 

History, Mission and Vision

After spinning off from Oxfam Novib in 2006, Triple Jump B.V. was created. Since its inception, Triple Jump has grown significantly, and currently manages five investment funds. Depending on the mandate these funds can invest in debt, equity and funds. In addition Triple Jump also provides advisory services, mainly to its investees. Triple Jump envisions a responsible and inclusive financial sector that will enable people in developing countries to unlock their potential and improve their quality of life. We aim to realize this vision by providing meaningful investment opportunities and professional fund management and advisory services to investors, and taking a hands-on and versatile approach when selecting promising investees and enabling them to succeed.

Investment Pillars

Triple Jump focuses on four main investment pillars: microfinance, small and medium enterprises (SMEs), housing, and agricultural finance. In 2016, we have also added an additional area of focus: sustainable energy. We are working on an initiative to foster financing and support for the implementation of sustainable power and water technologies in emerging markets.

The aim of this fund is to build clean infrastructure and ensure affordable and sustainable utility services(such as electricity, heat or clean water) for households, SMEs and communities. For everyone to benefit from economic growth, it will be crucial to combat climate change and environmental degradation on a global scale.

Our focus on these areas support our goal to help create a more responsible and inclusive financial sector, as well as enable our evolution into a full service impact investment manager in emerging markets.

Advisory Services

Providing advisory services and technical assistance to financial intermediates is part of our continuous effort to further develop the inclusive finance sector, by improving existing services and reaching out to unserved or underserved segments. Our advisors have served over 90 financial intermediaries that collectively serve more than 2.5 million clients in Latin America, Africa and the Caucasus. Our focus is on new and innovative financial products & services, risk management and social performance management, with the ultimate goal of better serving entrepreneurs at the bottom of the pyramid.

ESG & Impact

By intertwining our impact filters in our investment and selection processes, we predict positive social impact. And the likelihood that the companies we invest in, will contribute to the socio-economic development of their clients – micro and small & medium sized companies, is what we assess. In this regard, we developed the Interest Traffic Light as a tool to assess our investees’ social performance and to prevent high interest rates. In addition, we developed the assessment of CEO-compensation, signed the Principles for Investors in Inclusive Finance, endorsed Microfinance Transparency and the Client Protection Principles, and we are an active member of the Social Performance Task Force and the Global Impact Investing Network.
