Responsible Investment Management and Advisory Services

Investing

Our clients are social investors, ranging from international development organisations to pension funds, insurance companies and banks. We establish and/or manage responsible investment funds for them. These are then invested in financial service providers for the bottom of the pyramid. Our clients want to contribute to the sustainable development of emerging economies by providing opportunities for investment in micro, small & medium sized enterprises. Therefore, we support the expansion of viable financial service providers – like microfinance institutions – at all three stages of development (start-up, emerging and mature). We do this through providing capital and offering advisory services.

Current Investors

Our investors are institutional investors, development banks, governments, NGOs, family offices and retail banks, that seek a combination of financial and social or environmental returns. We provide a solid track record of both financial and social returns, and contribute to continued development of the financial sector.
