Goodwell provides risk capital and hands-on support to fast growing businesses in emerging markets, currently mainly in financial services (microfinance) and increasingly in other impact sectors that combine impact with commercial returns. We have invested in 16 fast growing financial services companies in India and Africa, ranging from classical microfinance to mobile payments and affordable housing finance. Our portfolio companies have reached over 7 million households with more than USD 1 billion in loans and other financial services.
We have around Euro 70 mln in committed capital. We are reporting healthy social and financial returns.
Our firm and our local teams have become established names in the impact investment sector. We are hands-on equity investors working in partnership with local teams in India (Aavishkaar), Nigeria (Alitheia) and Ghana (JCS) and our own team in South Africa.
