The Landscape for Impact Investing in Southeast Asia

The Global Impact Investing Network and Intellecap Advisory Services published The Landscape for Impact Investing in Southeast Asia, a comprehensive analysis of impact investing activity in Southeast Asia between 2007 and 2017. The research finds that Southeast Asia’s impact investing ecosystem has developed significantly over the last decade, with USD 904 million deployed to the region by private impact investors and USD 11.3 billion deployed by Development Finance Institutions since 2007. Findings draw on primary research with over 100 stakeholders, analysis of 514 impact deals, and a thorough review of existing research.
The report provides information about impact investing in 11 countries: Brunei, Cambodia, East Timor, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam. It also discusses gender lens investing in the region, outlines country-level political and economic factors that may inform investment decisions, and includes deep-dive chapters on Indonesia, Vietnam, and the Philippines.
