Private Asset Impact Fund Ecosystem Worth Over $30 Billion

Symbiotics publishes its inaugural global impact fund survey, merging its historical microfinance investment vehicle survey, started with the Consultative Group to Assist the Poor (CGAP) in 2007, and its private debt impact fund survey, started with the Global Impact Investing Network (GIIN) in 2018.

The Private Asset Impact Fund (PAIF) survey filters out the impact investing universe by focusing solely on strategies investing through funds and vehicles, targeting emerging and frontier markets, and with a development finance impact bias. This ecosystem is composed of over 210 specialized investment boutiques and the 435 private asset funds that they manage. The survey captures over two thirds of the market in assets under management (AUM), with $22 billion of data aggregation. The results show a market growth of 10 percent for the sector in 2019. In 2020, despite the pandemic, investment managers forecast stability – with only a slight decrease of 1.5 percent in AUM.
