- the sustainable development, and ultimately growth, of emerging fund managers, and
- investing for financial return while also considering the benefits to women, both through improving economic opportunities and social well-being for girls and women (gender lens investing),
ultimately in support of an economy in which more small- and medium-sized enterprises can succeed.
