Our Funds

We help impactful enterprises and purposeful businesses grow and deliver sustainable impact in their communities through the provision of affordable finance, business support and connection with local partners.

Impact investment

We help investors to achieve their Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance goals and Sustainable Development Goals through innovative funds and projects that deliver a balance of impact and financial return.

We invest in business sectors and assets that show a growing regional social or environmental impact at a community level.
