Baar-Zug, Switzerland – December 1, 2022
Blue Earth Capital AG (BlueEarth), a global impact investment firm, has, through its investment vehicles, committed $ 16 million to Creation Investments Social Ventures Fund V (Creation V), a private equity fund managed by Creation Investments Capital Management (Creation Investments), who today announced the final close of Creation V. The fund is strongly oversubscribed with more than $ 270 million commitments.
Creation V invests in high growth financial institutions that provide access to financial services to low-income individuals and micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) in emerging markets, including Latin America and Asia.
A majority of the 1.8 billion unbanked individuals globally reside in emerging markets. More than 85% of the population in Creation V’s target markets is either unbanked or underbanked. An estimated 1 billion MSMEs in emerging markets lack access to financial services, despite often being the primary employers in their countries and significant contributors to GDP.
Creation Investments, a global impact investment manager, has a strong track record of generating financial and social returns. Companies supported by Creation Investments serve more than 29.6 million customers, of which 54% are female and 1.6 million are MSMEs, with over $ 15.7 billion in micro and small business loans outstanding, $ 5.8 million micro-insurance policies, $ 4.1 billion in micro-savings, and $ 3.7 billion payments processed.
“We are thrilled to partner with the team at Creation Investments as they build on their successful track record of improving the lives of the unbanked and underbanked across emerging markets through increased access to financial services,” said Rohan Ghose, Principal, Private Equity Funds and Co-Investments at Blue Earth Capital.
“We are honored that BlueEarth is investing with us as we ramp up our efforts to benefit the lives of people in emerging markets who are at the bottom of the economic pyramid,” said Patrick Fisher, Founder and Managing Partner of Creation Investments.
