Impact Performance


Impact thesis

The Fund will invest in companies which meet the following criteria: (1) have strong growth potential in a large and growing market; (2) provide a product or services that provide a positive impact to everyday Americans; and (3) have a scalable business model with an attractive risk and return profile.
“Positive impact to everyday Americans” will be evaluated as follows:
1. A substantial portion of a company’s end-user consumers will be 'everyday' Americans-the approximately 40% of households that lack liquid savings to cover an unexpected $2,000 expense. Companies targeting a higher proportion of underbanked and lower income consumers will be given higher priority in our impact analysis and investment decision.
2. The company’s products and services must have a positive impact on its end-users, which will be described and evaluated by the short-term and long-term value to its end-user clients. Clearer, stronger long-term impacts will be given higher priority. Examples of short-term value are price reductions that result in immediate savings for consumers. Examples of long-term value are credit building and increased savings and investment opportunities.
