UBERIS Impact Fund

The Fund offers investors an opportunity to participate to the fast rise of Impact Investing in ASEAN, a region that lags behind Africa and LATAM.

Investment Pipeline

 

  • Thanks to a robust pipeline of companies across the Fund’s target market segments and geographies, a number of deals can be executed over the next two years.
  • UBERIS benefits from relevant networks on the ground and is a recognized member of the Impact ecosystem in both Asia and Europe.
