Island Forward: Solutions
We are optimistic about the long-term growth prospects of emerging markets but too few investors have exposure to the Caribbean countries and underrepresented founders.
The combination of a rising consumer class, ongoing structural and economic reforms, and a number of well-run businesses in the region provide attractive opportunities as these economies transition from low-value-added, labor-intensive manufacturing and extractive industry economies to ones more built on services, entrepreneurship and consumerism.
Our portfolio is long-biased and invested in equity securities of issuers in CARICOM countries with a focus on absolute return. These are overlooked emerging markets with good companies doing business across the world.
The fund is a traditional GP/LP structure focused on impact investing across Caribbean countries and the United States and targeting under-represented founders. The UN SDGs guide our industry focus.
Our growth unit partners with entrepreneurs and companies interested in mentorship and scaling. Our team helps to secure strategic relationships, local talent, provides business model advice and capital introductions
