Advance Global Capital Ltd has been selected as one of 50 funds in the 2019 ImpactAssets 50 list. This list is the industry’s first publicly available, curated database providing impact-oriented investors with a list of varied private capital fund managers that operate within impact spectrum.
London, 15th March 2019- Advance Global Capital Ltd is delighted to announce that its flagship fund was selected for the ImpactAssets 50 2019 (IA 50) list. This publicly available database is the first tool for impact investors to gain more insight into the social and/or environmental impact focused fund managers that offer solid investment aligned with their values. Applications are reviewed by a Review Committee of veteran Impact Investors.
“This is a great achievement for the AGC team and I am proud of everyone who has contributed over the years. Our next challenge is to make our efforts even more productive as we scale up the fund”, commented Janet McKinley, the Founder and Principal Investor of Advance Global Capital.
The list presents varied and reliable funds based in North and South America, Europe and Africa. The fund managers that appeared in the list represent a diverse selection of geographies and asset classes including Private Equity, Private Debt, and Real Assets. 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 and 9.
The database is produced by ImpactAssets, which is a non-profit financial services firm that increases the flow of capital into investments delivering financial, social and environmental returns. ImpactAssets’ donor advised fund (“The Giving Fund”) and field-building initiatives enable philanthropists, other asset owners and their wealth advisors to advance social or environmental change through investment and granting. The Giving Fund currently has nearly $500M in assets from more than 1,100 donor advised funds, working with 300 wealth advisors across 50 financial services firms.
