GIIRS Pioneer Investors
Impact Assets Under Management
Dear Members of the GIIRS Community,
2012 has flown by and as we head into the last few weeks of the year, the GIIRS team is both introspective and looking forward to working together in 2013. We would like to extend a warm welcome to our newly committed GIIRS funds - Adva Healthcare Fund, Bamboo Finance, EcoEnterprises Fund II, FCP Inversor, FIRST - Brazil Impact Investing Fund, Fundacion IES, Hispania Private Equity, LP, Impact First Fund, Leopard Haiti Fund LP, Microvest (MicroVest Short Duration Fund LP, MV II), New Markets Education Partners, NewSpring SBIC Mezzanine Capital II, LP, Renovus Fund I and Vital Capital Fund.
We are also excited to announce that UBS AG committed to GIIRS Ratings and Analytics as a Pioneer Investor, selecting GIIRS as its impact metrics partner for its Value Based Investing Unit.
We released our first Partnership Analytics report developed in conjunction with Investors' Circle, the first organization to sign up as a GIIRS Partner, using GIIRS as their exclusive metrics provider. Findings from the report provide a uniquely powerful tool for Investors’ Circle members to benchmark potential investments against deals they have reviewed in the past.
If you missed it, read highlights below from our Q3 Analytics Report and learn about increased functionalities for GIIRS companies and fund managers.
Have a wonderful holiday season and enjoy our last GIIRS newsletter for the year.
As always, thank you for supporting our efforts,
The GIIRS Team
