Our Impact



We believe in a private sector solution to the challenge of poverty. All of our investments are made to deliver risk-adjusted returns to investors and create wealth and employment in the countries in which we invest.

In addition, we work with our investee companies to ensure they meet global Environmental, Social and Governance standards. They must also subscribe to our anti-bribery and anti-money laundering policy.
