THE ADVANCE OF IMPACT INVESTING IN SOUTH EAST ASIA

This report provides an updated analysis of trends in impact investing and gender lens investing (GLI) in South East Asia, based on updated data on impact investment deals for 2017-2019 and building on prior market research.

This report effectively follows on from the IW Phase 1 report, The Landscape for Impact Investing in South East Asia, undertaken with the Global Impact Investing Network (GIIN) and Intellecap in 2018.  The report provides analysis of trends in impact investing and GLI in the region, with particular emphasis on Indonesia,  the Philippines and Vietnam.

 

Key Points

  • Private Impact investor activity has increased in the region, as compared to 2007-2016, both in terms of number of deals as well as total capital deployed
  • Development Finance Institutions deal activity over the last three years has also seen the emergence of other economies in attracting DFI capital, notably Myanmar
  • Impact capital deployed with a gender lens has also registered a sharp increase over the last three years—with 39 GLI deals in the region deploying USD 350.0 million in 2017-2019, compared with 33 GLI deals deploying USD 43.3 million from 2007-2016
