Microfinance Funds – 10 years of research and practice:
A Review and Analysis of CGAP & Symbiotics' Microfinance Investment Vehicles Surveys

by CCAP and Symbiotics

This 10-year review of the landscape of microfinance offshore investments is based on data collected through annual CGAP/Symbiotics surveys of Microfinance Investment Vehicles (MIVs) conducted between 2007 and 2016. The current paper largely focuses on MIVs, as defined in the disclosure guidelines – namely independent investment vehicles with more than 50% of non-cash assets invested in microfinance and open to multiple investors. However, and to a lesser extent, this paper also compiles data on some microfinance investment intermediaries (MIIs), such as funds open to single investors.
