GLS Alternative Investments – Microfinance Fund

Main objective of the Fund is to provide financial access to people and small entrepreneurs in developing countries. It primarily invests in microfinance institutions that – besides offering basic financial products – aim at making a strong social impact.

By end of 2018, the Fund had invested almost 100 million Euros in 53 microfinance institutions from 29 countries. It thereby reached about 30,000 borrowers, half of which are women and clients from rural areas, respectively.

Frankfurt School Financial Services provides the entire range of fund management services from investment management, risk management, portfolio management and transaction management to FX/hedging, compliance and AML.
