Service Proposition

Investment Management Services

Through First Mutual Capital, we provide investment management services. Investors who deploy capital in emerging markets can achieve development impact by enabling ventures that directly translate to jobs, wealth creation, and capacity building for those economies. Impact investing uses the instruments and incentives of investment to produce additional positive ‘social’ returns, anywhere in the world.


Investors targeting either or both of these two types of strategies are ideal partners for First Mutual Capital, which seeks to facilitate capital flows.


Regardless of mode of operation, we seek to be innovators and catalysts for change in the development sector. We innovate by designing new financing mechanisms, tools, and partnerships that help overcome complex challenges.
In these ways, we hope to increase access to finance for investors and entrepreneurs, who are the ultimate agents for change.
