Impact Investment
Mobilising capital to achieve social impact with a financial return.

Making the world a better place requires resources, and traditional funding models, such as foreign aid, philanthropy, and CSR, and yet, each have their own limitations. Some are too short-term, while others are too narrowly focused. But the need for funding is real, and the capital exists. PALLADIUM® mobilises private capital to address social issues, while generating a financial return for investors.​

Impact investing focuses on both developed and developing economies, each with its unique set of challenges. We aim to bridge the gap between aid and impact investments specific to emerging markets. We facilitate the flow of capital into impact investment opportunities by capitalising on Palladium’s global footprint, and unique visibility and expertise across numerous development projects, emerging markets, and sectors.​
