Multilateral Investment Fund Supports Creation of Impact Investing Fund for Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay

Wednesday, November 2, 2016

The Multilateral Investment Fund (MIF), member of the IDB Group, is supporting the creation of an Impact Investing Fund for Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay, seeking to trigger the flow of local and international capital for investments in early stage impact companies operating in those countries. The MIF will act as anchor investor in this Fund.

The MIF together with Acrux Partners, an impact advisory firm focused on responsible and impact investing in Latin America, are looking for a General Partner (GP) to invest in startup and scaleup companies that are using innovative models to address pressing social and environmental problems, contributing in this way to the development of the impact investment markets in the three countries.

Fund managers with a proven track record, who are interested in managing a fund investing in startup and scaleup companies which generate a positive impact in the society or/and the environment in the mentioned countries, are invited to apply.

The Fund is expected to maximize the opportunities developing in the region for the impact investing sector, within the framework provided by the work of the Impact Investment Task Force for Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay, which was launched in March 2016 with the objective of consolidating the conditions needed for the impact investment market to flourish in the three countries.

Expressions of interest may be submitted by December 15th, 2016. See the details here
