We are honoured to be name one of the 2021 Future 40: Impact Investment Funds by Real Deals and PER, in recognition of Sweef Capital’s bold focus on diversity and gender equality.
“As a women-led fund management firm, South-East Asia-based Sweef Capital has a bold focus on diversity and gender equality. It’s investment strategy is simple – to provide scalable solutions that meet the community’s needs and drive value through diversity and inclusion. Sweef Capital faced more difficulties than most during the Covid-19 pandemic, as retention rates and employee numbers rapidly decreased through its portfolio, as retail was worst affected. As a result, it re-focused its gender action plans, established even closer relationships with its entrepreneurs, and acted as a sounding board to help with navigation through, and post lockdowns. The firm measures impact from its due diligence processes, and is carried over the course of portfolio companies’ holding period. Gender equality is addressed in periodic assessments to drive the company’s score through active gender intervention and value creation work.” – shared Jennifer Buckley, Founder and Managing Director of Sweef Capital.
