The SocialAlpha Investment Fund (SAIF) was set up by AlphaMundi in July 2009 in Luxembourg as a SICAV-SIF Alternative Investment Fund. SAIF is dedicated to impact investing in Emerging Markets.
Bastion is an open-ended sub-fund of SocialAlpha with quarterly liquidity.
SAIF-Bastion provides senior loans to early- and growth-stage Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) whose core products and services are measurably contributing to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), with an emphasis on low- and middle-income consumers and rural areas.
SocialAlpha operates in Latin America and Sub-Saharan Africa, with the aim to bring commercial solutions to the SDGs to a national scale, then help them expand across borders.
SocialAlpha completed its 10th fiscal year on 30 June 2019, achieving a decade of profitable activity for its investors and transformative impact for its portfolio companies and their clients.
SocialAlpha was the 1st impact debt fund rated by the Global Impact Investing Ratings System (GIIRS).
With over 10 million beneficiaries to date, it was listed among the 50 Best-for-the-World funds and helped more than 30 innovative SMEs bridge the Missing Middle capital gap in key development sectors like Food, Finance and Energy.
Since 2017, SocialAlpha is a Gender Lens fund promoting diversity and women empowerment across its pipeline and portfolio companies.
