Through its dedicated Private Equity team, DWM originates and actively manages equity investments in impactful companies across the developing world. DWM seeks to control investment outcomes by taking large minority or majority stakes. DWM follows an active management strategy; taking board seats, engaging with management to improve performance, accelerating growth and developing industry leadership. Through our experience as a private equity manager, we seek to drive value across five key pillars: governance and control, management capacity, operations, balance sheet and business strategy.
To facilitate more liquid impact investing products, DWM also manages public fixed income with impact and development related themes.
From its founding in 1994, DWM’s earliest emerging and frontier markets products were focused on public equities, including IPO- and country- strategies. Looking forward, as the demand from investors for more liquid impact investing products grows, DWM is actively developing public equities focused impact products.
Through its investment banking expertise and registered broker-dealer, DWM Finance, DWM offers investors and impact companies debt and equity capital raises and structured product solutions.
