Portfolio Partner Profile

MicroVest Short Duration Fund

The MicroVest Short Duration Fund is a private credit fund that invests in Responsible Financial Institutions that predominantly serve micro, small and medium enterprises (MSME) in frontier and emerging markets. The fund seeks to deliver positive absolute returns with low to negative correlation to broader market indices. SDF connects global institutional investors with SMEs and entrepreneurs that can put loan proceeds to productive use but have historically lacked access to the formal financial sector. The typical end borrower seeks capital for productivity generating purposes, such as business expansion or asset acquisition.
