What we do

At Triple Jump, we know there is no one-size-fits-all approach.

Across our three business lines (Financial Institutions, Direct Investments, and Fund Investments) we work with our clients to design unique, responsible investment solutions that fit both their needs and the market.

How it works

A tailored approach
to designing investment solutions

We have 15+ years of track record pioneering in markets where finance offers solutions to global challenges while providing returns to investors. Years of experience in the sector help us make it easy for our clients to understand the process, options, and considerations. We are big believers in collaboration, and many of our clients like to be involved. By co-designing investment solutions, we ensure all parties are engaged with and excited about the investment and its impact.

Impact Themes

Financial Inclusion

We have over 15 years of experience in providing capital and technical assistance to financial institutions all over the world, with a focus on Africa, Asia, Latin America, Eastern Europe, and the Caucasus. These institutions in turn support micro-entrepreneurs near the base of the socio-economic pyramid with small and typically unsecured loans. This helps end-clients, many of whom are women and/or based in rural areas, to better manage their cash flow and deal with changing circumstances and unexpected shocks. Our activities in this theme relate primarily to SDG 1: No poverty.

Missing Middle Finance

Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) drive economic growth and job creation, yet they often struggle to receive the support they need to live up to their potential. Microfinance institutions provide small loans suitable only for micro-entrepreneurs, while commercial banks often consider SMEs too risky. This means missed opportunities for job creation, innovation, and inclusive economic growth. In 2014, the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs launched the Dutch Good Growth Fund (DGGF) to support investment funds that target underserved SMEs and to demonstrate that SME financing in emerging markets is a viable option. Activities in this theme are linked to SDG 8: Decent work and economic growth.

Affordable Housing

UN-Habitat estimates that, by 2030, 3 billion people (about 40% of the world’s population) will need access to adequate housing. Rapid urbanization has intensified the need to address this issue, as sprawling slums have become a common sight in many countries. Triple Jump and Habitat for Humanity International established the MicroBuild Fund (MBF) in 2012. The MicroBuild Fund supports financial institutions that supply tailored housing services to their clients, helping them to incrementally build their homes and improve their quality of life. Our activities in this theme relate primarily to SDG 11, Sustainable Cities and Communities.

Access to clean energy

In 2016, the UN named access to energy as one of the universal foundations for sustainable development, highlighting its importance to all societies. This is not simply about electrification — energy access can have other benefits such as improved health and safety or increased gender equality. The mandates and funds which fit into this theme provide tailored finance solutions and expert support to businesses operating in Sub-Saharan Africa that supply products and services which, in turn, increase access to clean, safe, reliable, and affordable energy for off-grid households and businesses. Our activities in this theme relate primarily to SDG 7, Access to Energy.

Climate & Nature

The effects of climate change have brought a renewed sense of urgency to build resilient communities and economies. We believe climate finance is crucial to support mitigation and adaptation efforts — through a combination of patient capital and venture building that will catalyze lasting changes. This is why we are developing comprehensive and long-term investment strategies to reverse the course of climate change and nature loss in the geographies we operate in.
