1.6 billion people around the world lack adequate housing
We invest in sustainable housing models that bring dignity and the security of home ownership to low-income populations
Investment Sector: Housing
Inadequate housing not only affects health and personal security, it is also part of a socioeconomic trap that limits the ability of people to feel safe, increase their incomes or improve educational outcomes. Our companies address both supply and financing for housing, as well as broader innovations that remove barriers to home ownership for low-income populations.
