‘Investing in Agriculture in Emerging Markets – How to ensure impact and returns?’

Our CEO, Nabil Marc Abdul-Massih, was kindly invited to speak during iGravity's last webinar on how to ensure impact and returns while investing in agriculture in EM. Investing in sustainable and inclusive agriculture in emerging markets can have the triple benefits of alleviating poverty, mitigating climate change, and providing attractive returns for investors. However, ensuring impact and returns can be tricky, as investors traditionally see this sector as high risk and find it difficult to avoid “impact-washing”. In the executive summary below, we share the key takeaways from iGravity's research and conversation with them.

Our Vision

Home-vision-slideOct2019

We have come a long way since the launch of our first Fund in August 2006, but for us it has always been about staying true to a simple vision: helping companies to grow in all business dimensions, including ensuring that our investees are leaders in the field of social and environmental responsibility.

We are driven by the challenge of channelling capital to the businesses that need it the most, in particular those small and medium sized companies within emerging economies that struggle access it. We believe that these will be the leaders of tomorrow.

Our Mission

home-mission-slideOct2019

We are an independent, alternative asset manager, authorized by FINMA and headquartered in Switzerland. Since 2006 we strive to generate sustainable growth by providing secure and efficient capital solutions for companies mostly in the Agri/Food sector, via collective and segregated investment vehicles that all apply our proprietary impact framework.

The fund vehicles that we manage target developing economies worldwide to channel capital to local, non-speculative commodity value chain participants. We act as a catalyst for local growth, through which both the investor and the investee can benefit from tangible value creation and sustained performance.

For us, providing capital to commodity value chains is not about leveraging traders or speculators that bet on price volatility. We exclusively focus on supporting tangible actors of the real economy, which contribute to the growth of resilient value chains which positively impact their community.
