Supply and Demand Side Assessment of Impact Investment within the Caribbean

Compete Caribbean

While Asia, Africa and Latin America have become important investment destinations for impact investors, the Caribbean has been largely overlooked by existing players as a priority region. Several key factors for this have been identified. The level of socio-economic development in the Caribbean is generally high, which means that the traditional target group for impact investments is relatively small. The purpose of this study has been to identify opportunities for impact investments in the Caribbean with a focus on five specific countries: Barbados, the Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Haiti and Trinidad & Tobago. These five highly disparate nations exemplify the opportunities and challenges faced by the region and investors within it.
