AlphaMundi Group

In a nutshell

Our Unique Value Proposition : Investment Solutions for People & Planet

AlphaMundi Group Ltd is a commercial entity based in Switzerland and exclusively dedicated to Impact Investing: profitable investments that generate substantial net benefits to society. It was founded in 2007 by a group of partners with extensive experience in the financial industry as well as responsible investments, microfinance and philanthropy.

AlphaMundi provides debt and equity financing to scalable social ventures in strategic sustainable human development sectors such as microfinance, affordable education, fair trade agriculture and renewable energy. In 2017, AlphaMundi began integrating gender analysis throughout the investment process. The team endeavors to advance gender equality at the management company, portfolio company, and beneficiary levels. AlphaMundi is currently investing out two impact funds. Our flagship fund, SocialAlpha Investment Fund (SAIF) – Bastion, is a short duration impact debt fund domiciled in Luxembourg with a Delaware feeder for US investors. In 2020, AlphaMundi launched AlphaJiri, a hybrid fund that can invest across the cap structure in social enterprises in Sub-Saharan Africa. AlphaMundi also manages co-investments for fund investors and third parties.

AlphaMundi partners believe that Impact Investing is a tool for development that can enhance more classical responsible investment approaches (which often lack impact ​measurability) and complement charitable solutions (which often lack financial viability). To this extent, the firm also contributes to the emergence of Impact and Gender Lens Investing through education events, publications and industry associations. These investments are now being integrated by leading US and European banks, pension funds, foundations and family offices into traditional investment portfolios, as primarily uncorrelated and profitable financial assets.

AlphaMundi donates 20% of its annual profits to AlphaMundi Foundation, a sister non-profit that provides technical assistance and impact measurement support to social enterprises and selectively sponsors other industry initiatives.

Our involvement in Kayapo

What we provide

Our investment philosophy is to merge the financial discipline of the private sector with the vision of sustainable development. Both SocialAlpha-Bastion and AlphaJiri finance impact businesses that can build a sustainable future for all while generating attractive financial returns.

Our investment thesis relies on the unmet needs of low- and middle-income consumers in Latin America and Sub-Saharan Africa, and their increasing purchasing power. Financial return prospects are enhanced by the limited bank offering and the terms of capital available to local early- and growth-stage SMEs.

Our investment strategy focuses on Latin America and East Africa for SocialAlpha and greater Sub-Saharan Africa for AlphaJiri. For both funds, we identify emerging and established market leaders with annual sales of USD 500K to USD 10M, and build up fund exposure progressively as they achieve financial and impact milestones, with investments ranging from USD 250K to USD 2M per company. We embed gender analysis in our diligence process and strive to work with companies on advancing gender equality at the management and beneficiary level. Portfolio companies are typically at an inflection point where AlphaMundi’s support on reporting systems, risk management, and value chain consistency can deliver substantial added value for all.  SocialAlpha invests across sectors while AlphaJiri has an emphasis on sustainable food and agriculture and renewable energy.

What we look for

We’re always looking for great, impactful companies, built by local entrepreneurs, looking to solve great challenges. We’re also looking for co-investors.

We do not offer perks to other Kayapo members.
