Our recently published online Impact Report highlights our role as an investor in inclusive finance during 2015.

We strongly believe that access to finance gives people the freedom of choice to pursue the life they wish to live. Inclusive finance offers financial services - savings, credit, payment services and insurance - to traditionally underserved people.

Such services offer a lifeline to millions to better support themselves and their families, thus improving their quality of life. Furthermore, inclusive finance plays a key role in meeting the largely unmet demand for small and medium-sized enterprises that also need access to financial services in order to start and grow.

In a newly launched online publication, you can read about our approach to investing for impact in inclusive finance and our commitment to contribute to the development of an inclusive financial sector in Asia, Africa and Latin America.

Investing for impact is too complex to be captured in a few metrics. For that reason, we present our 2015 results in a context of numbers, stories, and activities and by highlighting our approach: why we do what we do and how we have embedded this in our investment process.
