LeapFrog Investments is the world’s first microinsurance fund, hailed by President Clinton as “the Insurer to
the Poor”. The fund invests in businesses in Africa and Asia that provide affordable insurance to low-income
and vulnerable people. Its priority countries include India, the Philippines, South Africa, Ghana, and Kenya.
LeapFrog targets strong returns for its investors, tapping the estimated microinsurance market of 1.5 billion
people in emerging markets. Through its portfolio companies, the fund aims to reach 25 million low-income
and vulnerable people with essential financial services, 15 million of them women and children, providing
protection against life’s tragedies and ending cycles of poverty. LeapFrog’s profit-with-purpose investment approach has attracted leading banks, funds, insurers and
microfinance institutions as investors. The fund has also been recognised by The Financial Times, Bloomberg,
The Wall Street Journal, Fast Company and many global leaders as opening up new frontiers for alternative
investment, microfinance, and insurance.
