The Genesis Impact Fund (the Fund) will invest in small to medium enterprises that seek to deliver positive social or environmental outcomes. The Fund has been established with a geographical focus on the Pacific and impact themes focused on improved livelihoods, increased value-add in country and responsible environmental management.
The Fund will focus on organisations that have been supported through the Pacific RISE granting process. Pacific RISE is an Australia Government initiative to improve economic development in the Pacific region as part of the Government’s new development paradigm. This sees these organisations receive assistance from an intermediary as they move to investment readiness and potentially an investment by the Fund.
Within the Pacific region it is estimated that approximately one third of the population do not have the income or access to services to meet basic human needs. Through strengthening local businesses, increasing job opportunities and providing much needed investment capital your investment in the Fund will have a positive impact on the well-being of people across the region.
An investment in the Fund should be viewed as a medium to long term investment with a targeted internal rate of return of 15%.
Further details on the Fund, including the first two investments are covered in the attached Fund Flyer.
