LMDF – A social purpose investment fund

The Luxembourg Microfinance and Development Fund (LMDF) is a fund allowing institutional investors to access opportunities with high social impact and stable financial returns with low volatility. LMDF invests in debt instruments to refinance emerging microfinance institutions in frontier markets of Africa, Latin America and Asia.

We are driven by a strong social vision to focus our activities where responsible finance is needed most: among the poor and most excluded. Our investment approach consists of identifying promising intermediaries granting micro-loans and other financial products to low-income households. Often these intermediaries have little access to international or local financing.

A solid track record

Launched in 2009, LMDF together with its investment adviser ADA has built a proprietary due diligence methodology encompassing business, governance, financial and social aspects. An experienced team has realised more than 151 transactions in 26 countries.

Close relationships

As a small structure governed by an active board we maintain close relationships with our shareholders. We are happy to enter into a longer term dialogue with you about how microfinance works as an investment and where we see opportunities in some of the least accessed frontier markets.

Do not hesitate to contact us for more details.
