THE IMPACT INDUSTRY AND CASPIAN’S SUCCESSES
Impact investments are investments that are intended to create positive impact beyond financial returns. Caspian has been a pioneer and is one of the key players in the Indian impact investing space.
Fund I: Our first equity fund, Bellwether, established in 2005, was the first private domestic equity investor focused on Microfinance and was set up with the single-minded focus of catalyzing Microfinance in India. The Fund incubated several startups in geographically diverse and un/underserved locations. A number of startup MFIs funded by Bellwether are now amongst the leaders in the microfinance industry. This was the first Indian impact fund to return money to its investors.
Fund II: Our second equity fund, India Financial Inclusion Fund (“IFIF”), established in 2008 had a broader financial inclusion mandate and made pioneering investments in affordable housing in the country. The fund, currently in exit mode, has significant holdings in three of the recent small finance bank licensees.
Fund III: Our third initiative, Caspian Impact Investments (“CII”), is an NBFC registered with the Reserve Bank of India. CII provides debt to businesses engaged in SME financing, Microfinance, Affordable Housing, Food & Agribusiness, Clean Energy & Energy Efficiency and Healthcare. CII is a permanent business with no fixed term.
Fund IV: Our fourth initiative, Caspian SME Impact, is a domestic Category II Alternative Investment Fund registered with SEBI. The fund will invest in SME financing, Food & Agribusiness, Clean Energy & Energy Efficiency and other impact sectors.
