Mission

AlphaMundi Group Ltd is a commercial entity based in Switzerland and exclusively dedicated to Impact Investing: profitable investments that generate substantial net benefits to society. It was founded in 2007 by a group of partners with extensive experience in the financial industry as well as responsible investments, microfinance and philanthropy.

AlphaMundi provides debt and equity financing to scalable social ventures in strategic sustainable human development sectors such as microfinance, affordable education, fair trade agriculture and renewable energy.  In 2017, AlphaMundi began integrating gender analysis throughout the investment process. The team endeavors to advance gender equality at the management company, portfolio company, and beneficiary levels. AlphaMundi is currently investing out of its impact debt fund, SocialAlpha Investment Fund (SAIF) – Bastion, domiciled in Luxembourg with a Delaware feeder for US investors.  AlphaMundi also manages co-investments for SAIF-Bastion investors and third parties.

AlphaMundi partners believe that Impact Investing is a tool for development that can enhance more classical responsible investment approaches  (which often lack impact measurability) and complement charitable solutions (which often lack financial viability). To this extent, the firm also contributes to the emergence of Impact and Gender Lens Investing through education events, publications and industry associations. These investments are now being integrated by leading US and European banks, pension funds, foundations and family offices into traditional investment portfolios, as primarily uncorrelated and profitable financial assets.

AlphaMundi donates 20% of its annual profits to AlphaMundi Foundation, a sister non-profit that provides technical assistance and impact measurement support to social enterprises and selectively sponsors other industry initiatives. 

Mobilize private capital for the Sustainable Development Goals with an emphasis on SMEs in Latin America and Sub-Saharan Africa.
Familiarize investors with a diversified portfolio exposure, then facilitate co-investments in de-risked portfolio companies to increase the impact share of investor assets.
AlphaMundi was set up to identify and scale financially viable solutions serving the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals. We facilitate debt, mezzanine and venture capital investments of USD 200K-2M in early- and growth-stage impact ventures operating across multiple sectors in Latin America and Sub-Saharan Africa, with a minimum track-record of 3 years of sales and USD 1M in gross annual revenues. We often are the first or among the first international and institutional investors in an impact venture, and help our portfolio companies manage risk pro-actively and build up resilient operational capacity, to attract other local and international investors, diversify their product range and markets of operations, and ensure most of their revenues are derived from products and services that have a positive transformational impact on their clients, household beneficiaries, and communities of activity. Our investment strategy therefore pursues fair risk-adjusted returns on a short- to mid-term basis, a measurable and positive economic, social and environmental impact, and a catalytic role in the growth trajectory of most of our portfolio companies.
