Impact Investing Landscape in Brazil
Trends 2016 & 2017

ANDE & Lavca
October 2018

The Impact Investment Landscape in Brazil is a follow-up to the study launched by the two organizations on impact investing in Latin America, launched by the Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs (ANDE) and the Association for Private Capital Investment in Latin America (LAVCA) in October 2018.

This national report is based on a sub-sample of the 67 survey respondents from the Latin America study, of which 29 are active in Brazil and 22 invested in the country during the period 2016-2017. Most of them identify themselves as impact investors or managers of private equity or venture capital funds. The report provides data on the profile of the active investors, investment activity for 2016-2017 and expectations for investment in Brazil in 2018-2019.

The results of the Brazilian study emphasize that impact investment is a growing industry in the country and has remained resilient despite the political and economic scenario. Brazil was one of the countries that presented the highest numbers in terms of impact investment activity in the region. The report presents impact investing data based on characteristics such as sector, size and business stage, and also compares investment activity with that from 2014-2015, before concluding with recommendations for developing the industry moving forward.

Financing the Sustainable Development Goals: Impact Investing in Action

Posted By Administration, Monday, September 24, 2018

Financing the Sustainable Development Goals: Impact Investing in Action
by the Global Impact Investing Network (GIIN)


The Global Impact Investing Network (GIIN) published a new report in September 2018, Financing the Sustainable Development Goals: Impact Investing in Action, that reiterates the need for impact investors to raise and direct new capital to help meet the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030. With an estimated $5-7 trillion needed annually to achieve the goals, it is clear that more capital, deployed by investors whose aims align with these goals, is an absolute requirement. The report, released in advance of the agenda for the UN’s Global Goals Week, Sept. 22-29, showcases the potential for impact investing to catalyze progress towards these goals.
