South Africa's leading social investment
fund manager and advisor
25 years' experience in designing and implementing high-impact social investment solutions
To achieve impact, a social investor needs to understand the context in which they are investing and be clear on the strategy that will enable change.
Social investment is only successful if it is based on a foundation of good governance, which promotes transparency and compliance.
The effective management and disbursement of social investment funds is critical to achieving impact.
The measurement of impact is central to enforcing accountability and plays an important role in tracking progress of investments and interventions against a set target.
