Advance Global Capital Ltd recognized as Emeritus Impact Manager by Impact Assets

London, 12 March 2024 – Advance Global Capital Ltd is thrilled to share that it has been selected as an Emeritus Impact Manager by ImpactAssets 50 2024, for the sixth year running.

Sudha Bharadia, Co-CEO of Advance Global Capital Ltd, said: “Continuing our mission for impact, Advance Global Capital proudly accepts this recognition by IA50. Reflecting our unwavering commitment to fostering economic growth for small business worldwide, we are humbled by this status and are proud to have been selected every year for the past 6 years. The most fundamental aspect about our firm is that we started out in 2012 with the mission and ethos at the heart – to support SMEs with working capital. We remain committed to delivering decent financial returns and demonstrable impact to all our investors.”

ImpactAssets, the impact investing trailblazer with a decade-plus track record of mobilizing capital for good, today released the ImpactAssets 50™️ (IA 50) 2024, a free publicly available, searchable database of impact investment fund managers globally. The IA 50, now in its 13th year, is designed to offer a simple way to identify experienced and emerging impact investment firms and explore the landscape of potential investment opportunities across diverse impact areas, maturity levels and geographies.

This year’s list is composed of 155 impact fund managers selected from an unprecedented 343 applications, a submission volume that is 15% higher than last year. This growth signals increased interest in the IA 50, alongside expansion and maturation of the impact investing industry at large. The increasing traction also points to a broader shift that embraces impact investing’s critical role in shaping a sustainable future.

“As we celebrate the 13th anniversary of the IA 50, we are witnessing a pivotal shift in finance more broadly: Impact investing is catalyzing a fundamental reorientation of capital that is attuned to the urgent social and environmental challenges we face globally,” said Jed Emerson, ImpactAssets Senior Fellow, IA 50 Review Committee Chair, and Chief Impact Officer at AlTi Global. “The IA 50 2024 is a testament to the industry’s commitment to harnessing the power of capital for good and a preview of the more systemic integration of impact considerations we can expect in the future.”

In addition to Jed Emerson and Malaika Maphalala, the ImpactAssets IA 50 Review Committee includes a distinguished group of investors, managers and practitioners who are recognized as trailblazers and authoritative experts in the field.
