We are pleased to present you with PG Impact Investments’ first Annual Impact Report.
PG Impact Investments was founded in 2015 with the belief that private investment, innovation and entrepreneurial talent can provide solutions to the pressing social and environmental challenges facing our society. Since then, impact investing has become more relevant than ever, especially in emerging markets where innovative and inclusion-driven entrepreneurial solutions can lead to real improvements in people’s lives and their communities.
At PG Impact Investments, our goal is to improve the lives of people who live at the base of the pyramid or are underserved. Our portfolio companies and assets contribute to this goal by providing access to basic products and services (financial services, affordable housing, clean energy, affordable quality healthcare and education), and by enabling inclusive growth and economic development. We focus on regions where impact is needed the most. The vast majority of our capital is being invested in emerging markets with a focus on South East Asia, South Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America.
With 13 investments and total committed capital of USD 61.5 million, we directly contribute to the improvement of the lives of 1.1 million underserved people. In total, our portfolio companies and assets improve more than 37.8 million lives across 24 countries.
We want to take this opportunity to thank you for support and valuable contribution. Jointly we have been able to achieve real improvements in people’s lives. We continue to be excited about the opportunities ahead of us and want to thank you for your continued support.
