Inclusive Finance Impact Report

In the Inclusive Finance Impact Report you can read about our role as investor in the inclusive finance sector in Africa, Asia and Latin America. By zooming in on investees in Pakistan, Indonesia, Georgia, Ecuador and India we want to show a flavour of what inclusive finance can do and how the institutions highlighted, and backed by the investors in our funds, contribute to a more inclusive world.

Inclusive finance aims to make a broad range of financial services available to low-income populations in developing countries and emerging economies that are often excluded from such services. The estimated two billion people that lack this access have little opportunity to take charge of their financial lives, let alone to plan for a more prosperous future.

The call and urgency for financial inclusion is also embedded in the UN Sustainable Development Goals, a set of 17 ambitious goals to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all. Bringing people into the financial system can be instrumental in attaining many of the SDGs, including creating jobs, improving gender equality and access to education, to name a few.

Dirk Elsen, Director Emerging Markets at Triodos Investment Management: "This global acknowledgement of the importance of inclusive finance, in combination with the promise of financial technology (fintech), make investing in inclusive finance as exciting as ever."

Triodos Organic Growth Fund Impact Report

A growing consumer awareness on health and environment, and a wish to consume sustainably are reflected in recent and expected double-digit growth rates for both the organic and fair trade markets.

This growing awareness is fueled by an increasing urgency: non-transparent and imbalanced supply chains, pressures on the environment and the prospect of irreversible climate change require a fundamental change in the way we live, consume, produce and invest.

Fund Manager Riëlla Hollander: "We do this by providing long-term mission-aligned private capital to leading European organic food and sustainable consumer businesses that have a clear commitment to increasing consumer awareness and the market share of sustainable consumer products. By doing so, we safeguard these businesses’ independence, entrepreneurship and mission."
