Redefining the Future of Investing
Impact investing offers you the opportunity to generate meaningful long-term impact on society and the environment, with risk-adjusted returns.
The United Nations estimates that, in developing countries alone, the gap in financing to achieve Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is at US$2.5 trillion per year.
The SDGs provide a road map for entrepreneurs and investors who want to align their business goals with the “universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030”.
The four major investment areas of Arowana Impact Capital integrate these Global Goals.
Private capital plays an important role in addressing the financing gap to help attain the SDGs, but resources have to flow effectively into high-impact organisations – particularly those focused on alleviating concerns in low-income communities. This is where impact investing comes in.
Moving away from the purely profit-driven approach of traditional investing, impact investing balances the objective of creating wealth with the mission of distributing equitably the benefits of sustainable business practices. Every dollar invested towards social and environmental good yields more than just economic rewards. The investment empowers people who are working on the frontlines of change.
Impact investing is data-driven and transformative. Whereas philanthropy operates on the premise that beneficiaries are merely passive recipients of financial support, impact investing works with individuals and communities to help them become agents of social change.
Our team of operational, financial and technological engineers with real-life entrepreneurial experience know how to create value from multiple dimensions. We examine data on the ROI of our high-impact ventures, then use the data to guide our partners as they take the right steps to developing and scaling their own business.
In turning challenging circumstances into growth opportunities, this modern approach to investing gives members of low-income sectors the resources to transform the lives of individuals, families and communities.
