Boustead Investment Fund PCC is an impact-first private equity fund designed to generate significant social and environmental impact and market-based financial returns by using private equity best-practices to invest in high impact sectors in developing and developed nations.
The Fund is founded on two key principles:
The most effective means of empowering the poor is through employment.
The Fund will invest in high impact sectors because job creation on a large scale is the best way to help people lift themselves out of poverty. The poor can more easily improve their lives as employees of a company than as under-equipped entrepreneurs starting or managing their own businesses without having formal education or training. Instead of funding entrepreneurs who labour to repay high-interest loans, it has more impact to fund growing and well managed companies that generate jobs and capture economies of scale.
Creating profitable businesses achieves lasting impact.
Profitable businesses can become independent of charitable funding. Growing profits through the increased production of goods and services adds value to the local economy and the community.
