Cordiant is deeply involved in the GIIN working groups

  1. Member of the Global Impact Investing Network (GIIN)

  2. Contributor to the GIIN’s IRIS+ Framework & Impact Metrics

In 2019, we decided to increase our engagement in the organisation by being a contributor to the GIIN’s Gender Lens Working Group, which was for the development of a Gender-Lens Investing framework and ecosystem.  As an impact investor in emerging markets, Cordiant understands the deep interlinkages of gender as it relates to the investment process, and more precisely as a factor of ESG analysis & Impact Management.

Our gender commitment focusses on how to advance women’s economic empowerment throughout the investment lifecycle, by identifying interventions across the corporate value chain that would help optimizing the underlying social and economic value for the companies and markets in which we invest.

Since all needs, companies, investments, and markets are different, this framework is used as a guiding document, and it serves as a point of reference when elaborating a borrower’s immediate strategy, with regards to its gender impact goals and risk management strategy. The objective of this policy is to incorporate elements that will drive value both in terms of the beneficiaries and the dimensions targeted.
