Gender Lens Investing: How Finance Can Accelerate Gender Equality in Latin America and the Caribbean
by Leonora Buckland, Mar Cordobés, Stephanie Oueda Cruz and Lauren Murphy

This study is the first piece of detailed research on gender lens investing in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC). It adds to other regional analyses of gender lens investing emerging in the last few years in Asia and in Europe (authored by the same team as this report at the ESADE Institute for Social Innovation). The specific objectives of the study are to: 1) Describe the opportunity for different gender lens investing strategies in LAC; 2)Highlight key case studies and current activities in LAC; and 3) Offer top-level recommendations for how different players can put gender lens investing into practice. It is not intended to be a comprehensive landscaping of gender lens investing activities in LAC. IDB Invest's hope is that this research helps to catalyze more gender lens investing activities in the region by providing a much-needed starting point and reference for entrepreneurs, investors, ecosystem players and corporates to explore and pursue such strategies. They also believe that it will be useful to investors not currently active in the region, but who are looking at global gender lens investing opportunities. Finally, it will help the global gender lens investing movement with a more detailed and synthesized regional overview.
