Founded in 2003, MicroVest is an asset management firm that offers investors a unique global investment opportunity. MicroVest seeks to invest capital in under-banked markets and provide access to financial services for rising middle class communities around the world. They believe a detailed due diligence process and a focus on aligning values can result in meaningful financial returns, producing risk-adjusted returns for their investors not despite the social lens of their investment process, but because of it. MicroVest believes that financial institutions that invest in the real economy and treat their clients with respect will outperform.
MicroVest manages a family of funds that seek to provide private capital to financial institutions that in turn make loans to entrepreneurs in developing communities. As of March 2016, MicroVest managed over $400 million across all its funds.
