Impact Investing

Impact Investing and the Power Sector

Despite the positive economic news and encouraging trends that have emerged from Ghana over the past decade, the troubling reality remains that the everyday livelihoods of Ghanaians have not kept pace with macroeconomic growth, and per capita GDP persistently lag behind the rest of the world. There is diverse school of thought deeply explaining why the livelihoods of Ghanaians are not keeping pace with the impressing economics figures quoted over the years.

We submit that Impact Investing can address the stubborn income gap because it is vibrant and robust enough to promote sustained economic growth and generate long-term, viable livelihoods across the country.
The very phrase “impact investing” sounds rapacious, but it is an emerging hybrid of philanthropy and private equity that proponents say is about to become more widespread.
