Our story so far

Triple Jump B.V. was created after spinning off from Oxfam Novib in 2006. We have grown a lot since then – from a small team focused on financial inclusion, to more than 100 Jumpers across 6 offices, working on different functions towards managing or advising seven investment funds, portfolios, or mandates, all of which have a dual objective to deliver impact and financial returns.

We go where investing capital empowers people and improves lives — because, ultimately, we envision a world where entrepreneurs can significantly contribute to solving global challenges like poverty, inequality, and climate change.
