In many countries the financial sector reaches only a small fraction of the population, limiting people to manage their daily lives, develop their entrepreneurial skills and actively contribute to economic growth. While the traditional “IRR – Internal rate of return” focuses on the profitability of an investment, we believe that investing in financial inclusion needs to include Impact, Risk and Return – the “other” IRR. Triodos Investment Management is one of the leading investors in this field.

This webinar answers your questions on: 

  • Impact: How strong is the evidence that financial inclusion works?  
  • Risk: Is investing in financial inclusion a ‘risky business’ and is there a trade-off with a solid financial return?
  • Return: How can you, as an investor, contribute to reaching the 1.4 billion adults and tens of millions of small businesses that are still unbanked?

Our financial inclusion experts, Tim Crijns and Maritza Cabezas, together with our guest speaker Sasha Dichter, from 60 Decibel, will give you insights into this global challenge and opportunity from an Impact, Risk and Return perspective. 60 Decibels is a global, tech-enabled impact measurement company that brings insights and repeatability to social impact measurement and customers.
