Impact Performance


Impact thesis

Despite South Africa's transition to democracy in 1994 after many decades of discriminatory practices based on race, there remain significant socio-economic challenges that effectively limit the economic empowerment of Black people. The wealth pyramid in South Africa remains heavily biased in that Black people remain largely excluded from economic activity not by design but rather because of the history of Apartheid. This fund seeks to invest in organizations that provide essential services to the underprivileged and underserved.
The social impact of all investment is measured and feedback is provided to clients on a regular basis. For every R1 million invested, Atlantic targets the creation of 30 jobs. We utilize global impact measurement standards (Impact Reporting and Investment Standards, IRIS) to quantify the socio-economic impact of each investment.
