The Global Impact Investing Network (GIIN), in partnership with Dalberg Global Development Advisors, published the full release of “The Landscape for Impact Investing in South Asia” — a ‘state of the market’ analysis of the impact investing industry in the region. The most comprehensive study of impact investment activity in South Asia to date, the full report includes a chapter for each of the six countries studied — Bangladesh, India, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka.
This report analyzes an active impact investing market across South Asia. Development finance institutions (DFIs) remain a significant player in the market, having deployed over $8 billion in impact capital to date. However, several other types of investors — including VC/PE funds, foundations, family offices, and commercial banks — are becoming increasingly active, and such non-DFI impact investors have deployed over $800 million to date in the region.
