Symbiotics Expands Its Flagship Industry Survey – From Microfinance Funds to Private Asset Impact Funds
Building on 15 years of track record in collecting and reporting data on the financial and social performance of Microfinance Investment Vehicles (MIVs), Symbiotics is broadening its fund research expertise with a new survey on Private Asset Impact Funds (PAIF Survey). Targeted at impact fund managers with a bias in managing private assets in emerging and frontier markets, this inaugural survey will offer comprehensive benchmarks for fund managers and asset owners alike to position their impact investment activities against industry-level trends.
Roland Dominicé, CEO of Symbiotics, commented: “In the last two decades, we have seen an increase in investor appetite for fund products that go beyond microfinance, into sectors like climate & energy, food & agriculture, SME finance, or affordable housing. Today, more than 200 impact fund managers venture into these territories. By soliciting them to share their data, our independent research team will put together new benchmarks while ensuring data continuity on MIVs.”
