The “double bottom line” mandate of the Fund means that investments must make an investment return and generate economic impact. This represents a new approach to investing. It is a challenging mandate for which there is very little, if any, precedent globally. However it also creates opportunity to do things differently. Testament to this is the strong and wide ranging pipeline of opportunities that the Fund has generated since its establishment. See below our investments to date.
