what our investors are saying
“What attracted me to Deetken Impact is their focus on and experience with financial services for low income people, an area I know well as a former institutional equity portfolio manager in emerging markets. It enables strong social outcomes and fosters entrepreneurship, especially among women, in developing countries. The sourcing and structuring of their investments is also sound; as thoughtful lenders and partners, they can generate a good return with low downside risk. The whole package – social impact, good returns, and managers with the right mindset and background – was quite appealing.”
