ABOUT MIX

MIX is the leading global data resource for socially responsible investors and businesses focused on inclusive finance.

ABOUT RELAY

Despite record levels of investment, evidence shows that it is still challenging to get capital to many fintech companies, including those targeting the 3 billion financially underserved people worldwide. Research indicates that this is due, in part, to a lack of information which makes it difficult for investors to identify and evaluate opportunities.
