Selection recognizes Insitor globally as a leading impact investment fund manager
SINGAPORE (March 20, 2023) - Insitor Partners has been selected to the ImpactAssets 50 2023, it was announced last week. The IA50 recognizes a diverse group of impact investment fund managers who demonstrate a commitment to generating positive social, environmental, and financial impact.
The IA 50 is the first publicly available database that provides a gateway into the world of impact investing, offering an easy way to identify experienced impact investment firms and explore the landscape of potential investment opportunities. The IA 50 is intended to illustrate the breadth of impact investment fund managers operating today. Firms have been selected to demonstrate a wide range of impact investing activities across geographies, sectors, and asset classes.
Insitor Partners was founded in 2009 in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, with the goal of backing entrepreneurs who build life-changing solutions for low-income consumers. Insitor currently has more than $90 million assets under management (AUM) and has invested in 31 companies across South and Southeast Asia. These companies have positively affected the lives of more than 51 million individuals.
To be considered for the IA 50 2023, fund managers needed to have at least $25 million in assets under management, more than three years of experience as a firm with impact investing, documented social and/or environmental impact and be available for US investment.
"We are proud to be chosen for the IA 50 2023. The selection is a recognition of Insitor's overarching goal since inception: to positively affect the lives of low-income consumers in Asia in a way that is both commercially sustainable and scalable," said Nicholas Lazos, Insitor's Chief Investment Officer.
"This year’s IA 50 showcase is a watershed, as the industry continues to allocate more investable assets into social and environmental solutions with both time-tested strategies and creative, new approaches," said Jed Emerson, Senior Fellow, ImpactAssets, IA 50 Review Committee Chair, and Chief Impact Officer at AlTi Global. "Established funds continue to impress, while new funds are bringing fresh approaches and insights that move the needle in critical areas through impact investing."
