Investment in the Amazon | Finance for Good Webseries

?All the connection between the value chain you are operating with the value chain you are investing in, the type of business most aligned to this, the type of entrepreneur, the support he needs, the financial instrument, the element of risk mitigation and the type of capital, do you have to align all these factors to increase your probability of success by making impact investments in the Amazon?, explains Leonardo Letelier, from Sitawi.

Impact investing in the Amazon has a great advantage over traditional investment because it considers all the dimensions involving the location from the beginning. The peculiarities of the Amazon region are considered compared to other large investment centers, which directly involve logistics and the social impact on communities living in forests.

Nick Oakes, from Althelia Funds, clarifies which are the sectors that most attract them to invest in the region. Check out the video to understand more about it!
