Inside's team is composed of locals, who all have strong ties and concerns for the regions development and are mindful of the role and the impact SME's will have on these underserved markets.
There is sufficient documented evidence supporting the fact that companies with good ESG performance tend to outperform those with poor environmental, social and governance. Specific reference can be made to studies by IFC, SABS and Harvard Business School.
Inside endorses this view and has, as a direct consequence, integrated the proactive management of ESG into its' investment processes. The process prompts the team into looking at ESG with value creation at the back of their minds.
In this regard, Inside has access to resources from partner LPs such as DGGF, and other champions in sustainability who, in part include, IFC, CDC, and FMO.
