25jun12:1513:45Sold Out!MICROFINANCE AS AN INVESTMENT OPPORTUNITYGENEVAEvent Type:CE EventLocation:Genève

Event Details

In recent decades microfinance has had a fundamental impact on the fight against poverty, promoting the financial inclusion of the poorest and weakest of the world’s population. Although much attention has been devoted to this issue by institutions, research centers, analysts and scholars, one issue has been studied in a much less systematic way.

  • Is it possible to see microfinance as an interesting opportunity for private investors?
  • Can microfinance be considered as a real asset class, with its own specific characteristics?

Microfinance not only has a fundamental impact on the financing of assets that would otherwise not be bankable but can become an interesting asset class for institutional and/or professional investors. Microfinance investments are able to reconcile economic and social objectives while generating returns that attract private investments. In the coming years, microfinance sector could experience not only significant but also sustainable growth.
