impact investment & infrastructure

In signing up to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in 2015, United Nations member states recognized the amount of money required to meet their commitment was 10 times the total amount of donor funds available. The only way to bridge the gap is to harness the power of private capital, creating opportunities for meaningful impact investment that deliver strong financial returns.

Alinea Capital provides investment opportunities that deliver against the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Involved in the very inception and origination of projects, we understand the commercial viability of projects and how to set up platforms for the sustainable delivery of measurable returns within an impact framework. Alinea Capital helps organizations structure propositions to maximize and monitor financial, social, environmental and governance benefits and returns to all stakeholders. Our highly specialized team works every day to create long term transformative change that delivers on people’s rights to essential goods and services, using sustainable business models that create strong financial returns.

We connect capital with measurable impact ready projects by blending public and private finance to reduce risk and increase returns to facilitate investment in the provision of goods and services that would not otherwise eventuate.

We work with a specialist impact investment partner, The Global Impact Initiative. With the endorsement of groups like the UN and Malala Fund, Global Impact Initiative works with global sources of capital to create bespoke investment solutions in partnership with some of the world’s largest investment managers.

We work with global leaders in Human Rights, such as Amnesty International, a global NGO focused on human rights and social justice with more than seven million supporters worldwide.

Alinea Capital is currently raising capital for impact investment projects in healthcare, renewable energy, affordable housing and education.
