iGravity is an advisory firm specialised in impact investment and innovative finance solutions established in March 2017 committed to accelerating the transition to a sustainable and equitable world. We are a fast-growing company managed by experienced people with a bold vision of making development cooperation more effective as well as impact investments accessible to everyone.
The firm works across three business lines being Advisory & Partnerships, Investment Solutions and Impact Ventures and clients include NGOs, international organisations, family offices, banks, asset managers, foundations and governments. The core iGravity team consists of sixteen people based in Zurich (HQ), Nairobi, Milano and Kampala with strong technical expertise and background in impact investing, development cooperation, private sector, Philanthropy and innovative finance who have extensive experience living and working in developing countries and recognise the importance of locally driven and owned initiatives. Our team members are fluent in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese.
At the centre of our work there are usually (social) enterprises and entrepreneurs, and our ambition is to support them across the different stages of their entrepreneurial journeys, recognising that different financial instruments and tailored non-financial support are required in different moments of their journey.
Most of iGravity’s Advisory & Partnerships work centres around the design and development of financing structures and partnerships that mobilise resources to achieve the SDGs. Through its Impact Venture arm, iGravity identifies, supports and invests in businesses that solve social issues with a sustainable and scalable model. iGravity currently has a small portfolio of proprietary investments on its balance sheet in the equity of enterprises that are leveraging technology to solve social issues, as well as it is currently advising two foundations for direct venture investments in Sub-Saharan Africa. Under Investment Solutions, iGravity has developed an Impact Investment Index, an actively managed multi-asset class portfolio of impact investment securities selected on the basis of both financial performance and a proprietary social impact assessment. To this end, iGravity has developed strong expertise in identifying and analysis impact investment opportunities across asset classes, SDGs/sectors and geographies, which composes its proprietary database.
