Impact Report, Q3 2021

25 November 2021 |
It is increasingly understood that absolute levels of poverty are far from the only issue affecting the world’s poor.

Almost a third of adults globally (about 1.7 billion people) remain unbanked1.In the latest Impact Quarterly Report, we delve into the theme of Financial Inclusion, as a theme linked to 13 of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We argue that improving people’s access to the products and services they need to manage their money reduces income inequality, fosters gender equality and political stability, improves access to natural resources like water and energy, and creates economic opportunity.

Other highlights in this edition include:

  • Our exposure by impact theme: We share how our portfolio breaks down across nine impact themes, as aligned to the SDGs.
  • Case studies: We provide case studies for two portfolio companies.
