INOKS CAPITAL SA   © 2018 9 11 YE ARS OF IMPACT CONSOLIDATING OUR VISION 2017 marked an impor tant year in our company’s grow th and consolidation af ter several significant milestones were reached: Our Commodity Structured Trade Finance (CSTF) strategy achieved AUMs of USD 350 million by year end. To date it has channelled over USD 3.6 billion towards 125 companies. The portfolio grew to 33 counterparties (from 20 in 2016) and diversified its geographic allocation by returning to Brazil following an 8 year hiatus. A first mid-term (3 year) investment was successfully divested, having enabled its beneficiary to fully inte- grate multiple value chain segments essential to its enhanced value addition, footprint, long-term auton- omy and growth. Our team was strengthened by key reinforcements at positions covering legal, compliance, collateral manage- ment and reporting duties. E&S governance was bolstered via key team trainings developed in partner- ship with SIFEM, and by establishing a granular Environmental and Social Management System (ESMS). This second edition of our annual Impact Repor t will focus on ESMS implementation, while showcasing the E&S achievements of our por tfolio companies throughout 2017.
