“Our industry partners are not just financial partners but also intellectual partners as we deploy funds into impact investments. We partner on behalf of their investors as we seek to honor their financial and impact goals.”
–Courtland Walker, head of products & partnerships
Tailored and risk-appropriate white-label funds
Many investment asset managers lack in-house experience in impact-driven emerging-market private debt or private equity—all core competencies of DWM. DWM essentially becomes their team so they can quickly offer world-class impact investing with existing resources.
DWM can offer tailored solutions for open-end and closed-end funds, private offerings, mutual funds (or country equivalent), securitized structures, daily liquid, blended asset approaches (such as private debt and public fixed income), and blended finance structures (such as with catalytic capital supporting purely commercial capital).
Investment management within pre-existing funds
Managers of existing impact investments do not always have the resources in-house to accommodate the growth of assets or a broadened mandate. DWM is well-positioned to help. Whether functionally siloed (by region or asset class, for example) or simply sharing assets across the vehicle, DWM works seamlessly with existing managers.
DWM invests alongside other impact investors to create scale and complementary opportunities for both. We are particularly open to opportunities in development-related sectors outside of inclusive finance, including, but not limited to, renewable energy and climate solutions, health, housing, agriculture, education and water & sanitation.
DWM partners with a range of investment managers to offer impact investing products to investors around the world.
