With long-term savings pool estimated at over R2.250 trillion, South Africa is comparatively best positioned to make the most of impact investment strategies in sub-Saharan Africa. Especially with access to education, health and food - themes that will make significant impact to the social demographics of South Africa.
However, unlocking impact capital at scale is hampered by lack of experience which prevents investment committees and trustees from allowing their investment teams to make impact capital commitments. As well as limited availability of investment vehicles that offer the required diversification of risk. This Immersion is designed to get people who determine how and where money is deployed to allocate significant sums of private investment capital to funding enterprises and interventions that optimise social, environmental and financial impact.
