London, 17 January 2024 — Real Leaders has unveiled the 2024 Top Impact Companies, and Advance Global Capital Ltd is thrilled to secure a spot as a Top Company in this year’s Real Leaders Impact Awards. This marks the 6th consecutive year of the awards and AGC’s 3rd recognition by the publication.
Real Leaders, a Global Media, CEO network and Certified B Corp, which is dedicated to inspiring the future of business, announces the award with over 500 applications from 15+ countries. The awards ranked privately-owned companies by asking 30 questions within 6 categories of I.M.P.A.C.T (Intention, Model, People, Accountability, Collaboration and Transformation) to vet and rank companies based on those parameters.
“We are thrilled to be recognized as a Top Impact Company by Real Leaders among many other values-aligned companies,” said Sudha Bharadia, Co-CEO of Advance Global Capital. “Our long-term focus on delivering flexible working capital to SMEs in underserved communities has been a huge part of achieving this award.” she added.
What sets AGC apart from its peers is its globally diversified portfolio, non-correlated returns, as well as the measurable impact targeting very small (and women-led) businesses and aligning with UNSDGs 5, 8, 9 and 10. Receiving this recognition from Real Leaders further confirms the importance of our mission to deliver funding to underserved small and medium businesses to create jobs and grow communities.
In addition to the new I.M.P.A.C.T categories, the awards debuted five new awards such as: Most Valuable Mission, Most Innovative Model, Most Impactful People, Best Collaboration, and Most Transparent. “After five successful years of producing the go-to list of the ‘Top Impact Companies’ it was time for Real Leaders to expand its mission by growing an impact awards community that preserves its integrity while scaling its impact.” said Kevin Edwards, Real Leaders’ General Manager.
