The Landscape for Impact Investing in Southeast Asia

The Global Impact Investing Network, together with Intellecap, published The Landscape for Impact Investing in Southeast Asia, a comprehensive analysis of impact investing activity in the region between 2007 and 2017. The report finds that Southeast Asia’s impact investing ecosystem has developed significantly over the last decade, with USD 904 million deployed to the region by private impact investors (PIIs) and around USD 11.2 billion deployed by Development Finance Institutions (DFIs) since 2007. Findings draw on primary research conducted with over 100 stakeholders, a thorough review of existing research, and aggregate analysis of 514 impact deals.

The Landscape for Impact Investing in Southeast Asia provides detailed information about the investing activity and trends in 11 countries: Brunei, Cambodia, East Timor, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam. The report also outlines challenges and opportunities for impact investors, provides details about gender lens investing activity in the region, and analyzes political and economic factors that may inform investment decisions in each country.

The report comprises five chapters: an executive summary, three chapters examining Indonesia, the Philippines, and Vietnam in detail, and an overview of the region’s remaining countries.
