Make an impact with your investment

Deetken Impact specializes in impact investing – we make a positive social and environmental impact in the Americas.

Making a difference with strong returns.
That’s what we’re all about.

What we do

We invest in emerging economies to generate long term returns while helping communities grow and prosper.

We prioritize returns and capital preservation, thus we strategically hand-pick and rigorously assess our limited number of investees. To qualify, they need to meet our high standards for sustainability and financial performance, which means they represent safe, profitable and previously unexplored avenues of growth.

Impact investing is about supporting entrepreneurs and communities. The businesses we select are poised to provide essential services in their respective countries, from health care and education to clean energy.

They are businesses that significantly improve the lives of
under-served communities, giving them opportunities for growth and development that would otherwise be unavailable.

Deetken Impact Makes a Difference.

Strong Returns. Measureable Impact.

The Deetken Impact Fund is a diversified portfolio of investments in high impact businesses – businesses that deliver financial, social and/or environmental returns.
