You are in Direct - Inclusive Finance » PIIF Principle 6: Balanced returns
Strive for a balanced long-term social and financial risk-adjusted return that recognises the interests of clients, retail providers and investors.
Social performance, broken down into outreach and impact criteria are core part of the Investment Committee decision making. ALINUS is integrated into the Investment Committee due diligence file to shed further light on this aspect of investments. We also use our own bespoke metrics which focus on particular areas of social performance which are fundamental to decision making. Social performance is also integrated into our analysis of financial performance - notably the analysis of interest rates and profitability.
Social performance criteria affect regional and country allocation targets. One of the criteria for country selection is the Human Development Index score (with a higher weight for less developed countries) or its presence on the DAC List for least developed countries. We also consider market saturation and dynamics of microfinance markets to see whether our investment adds value to a particular market.
