The ANDE Investment Manager Training is an intensive five day course which covers all aspects of investing in small and growing business (SGBs) – from deal sourcing and due diligence to exit strategies. The course will focus on deals across emerging markets, with reference to global case studies.  

This course is based largely on actual deals made by ANDE members and is designed to be highly interactive and participatory. It will also focus on the social and environmental impact of investing at this level, and how that affects the investment process. This is the only course of its kind that focuses on both investing in emerging and developing markets and impact investing.

If you are interested in gaining additional knowledge on investing in early stage deals in emerging markets from some of the leaders in the field, then this is the course for you.


Who should attend?

The training is primarily targeted at those who are directly responsible for investment and portfolio management or capacity development providers who work closely with investment managers and/or with entrepreneurs seeking investment. Participants should be mid-level and have a good understanding of basic financial and accounting concepts, including internal rates of return and discounted cash flows. Here you can find a list of past participants in 2017-2018.

Cost to Participate:

The cost for the course is given above. This will cover the five days of training, all course materials, breakfasts, snacks, lunches, a welcome dinner on Monday night, an investor discussion session on Thursday evening and a closure party on Friday night. Participants are responsible for their own travel, lodging, and dinner (apart from the first night).
