We invest mainly in three sectors – finance, energy and healthcare – where we see mass-market opportunities for high growth and social impact.

Those opportunities are generally in growth markets, but our focus is on the business not the economy.

We invest in companies that will revolutionise financial inclusion. The relevant sub-sectors are microfinance, fintech, small and medium-sized banks, money operators, correspondent banking and peer-to-peer lenders. Our investments include ground-breaking P2P platforms such as KUBO in Mexico and correspondent banking models like MOVILRED in Colombia.
