Alquity’s belief in a fair distribution of prosperity is integral to our unique approach, which aims to benefit local communities in developing countries at a grass roots level.
To make this happen, Alquity has committed to donating a minimum of 25% of its net management fee revenue from the Africa fund to support local economic development activity in Africa through its charity partner, Opportunity International. All of our donations are taken from the fund management fees, which means that the donation process does not impact fund investment performance or investment choice.
Donations from the Alquity Africa Fund are used exclusively to support microfinance projects in Africa, which provide credit/savings services and training to people who need it most. All loans are made under standard repayment terms which means that the original donation continues to grow as loans are repaid and can be lent out again and again.
Through support of microfinance projects, a virtuous circle of investment can be created; transforming the lives of local people, creating jobs and therefore benefiting the economy in general.
