Impact Services - International Work

A growing international presence for Investing for Good

Investing for Good has a growing international presence, having taking on a number of advisory mandates across Africa and Asia. These have provided Investing for Good with the opportunity to apply a number of innovative concepts and structures developed in the UK social investment market in a new context. They also offer a much needed source of funds for high social or environmental overseas impact projects and the opportunity for investors to align themselves to a range of geographic project themes.

Highlights include:

  • Advising an impact-focused business accelerator Growth Mosaic in Ghana, under a British Council-led programme, on potential structures for an investment vehicle to fund local social enterprises by providing seed capital and business acceleration services
  • Co-developing with a dedicated finance provider impact-screened trade finance notes focused on the provision of short term financing to SMEs in Sub-Saharan Africa
  • Producing an impact framework and monitoring plan in connection with an initial equity funding round for an innovative, India based, affordable accommodation provider 
  • Supporting a leading NGO in Kenya to identify suitable investment models and assessment framework on investment readiness, assessing the differing capital requirement needs of social enterprise clients, engaging with investors and running repayable finance workshops.
