Focus on five sectors

We focus on investment sectors with opportunities to improve the quality of life and address the basic human needs of billions of low to lower-middle income populations. We have identified five key sectors that we believe are building blocks for empowering underserved people and their communities: education, health, energy, agriculture, information and communication technologies. By focusing on and creating impact in those areas, we also align with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.

Our impact investments

Our portfolio companies strive to deliver attractive financial returns to investors, and to solve some of the world’s most pressing societal problems. With effective, scalable business models, our investees have the potential to tap into large-scale markets considering the unmet demand of billions of people for access to affordable products and services, and livelihood opportunities. All our portfolio companies have proven early success and the willingness to scale their footprint in emerging and developing countries.

Positive impact creation

ESG forms the bedrock for each company in which we invest. A unique impact plan is created articulating the expected impact outcomes aligned with the strategic Value Creation Plan (VCP) agreed with the management. Every partner company will have to achieve certain impact return metrics as part of the VCP. This will be the core driver of our investment thesis in addition to financial performance. We use proprietary tools and frameworks to assess and measure the societal and environmental value creation plan of our investments. Together with our portfolio companies, we use these insights to constantly improve and maximize impact and returns.
