Developing World Markets (DWM), a leading impact investing firm, announces a refreshed brand image that embodies both the firm’s future orientation and proud history. DWM is committed to making commercially attractive investments that meet the economic, social, and environmental needs of developing countries.  
DWM continues to build on its 25-year history of impact investing in emerging and frontier markets as it moves into a new visual and technological era with this updated brand identity. The key element of the rebranding effort is a contemporary logo that reflects the global and interconnected network of team members, investors, portfolio companies, and end clients we serve and link together across more than 80 countries on five continents.

Co-founder and Managing Partner Peter Johnson reflects, “DWM has been a pioneer in impact investing since before the term existed, and today our ambitions to change the world through purposeful and productive investment have never been greater.”
