AROUND THE WORLD, MILLIONS REMAIN TRAPPED IN POVERTY BECAUSE THEY LACK ACCESS TO FINANCIAL SYSTEMS

INVESTMENT SECTOR: FINANCIAL INCLUSION

Around the world, financial inclusion plays a vital role in reducing poverty and inequality. The companies we invest in go beyond basic financial services to focus on full financial inclusion—companies that treat customers with respect, design solutions with customers needs in mind and, ultimately, help as many people as possible graduate out of the vicious cycle of poverty.
