ANDE Investment Manager Training

September 10, 2018September 14, 2018


The ANDE Investment Manager Training is an intensive five day course which covers all aspects of investing in small and growing business (SGBs) – from deal sourcing and due diligence to exit strategies. The course will focus on deals across emerging markets, with reference to global case studies.

This five day course is based largely on actual deals made by ANDE members and is designed to be highly interactive and participatory. It will also focus on the social and environmental impact of investing at this level, and how that affects the investment process. This is the only course of its kind that focuses on both investing in emerging and developing markets and impact investing.

If you are interested in gaining additional knowledge on investing in early stage deals in emerging markets from some of the leaders in the field, then this is the course for you.

Past Participant Feedback:

“ANDE’s investment manager training was the perfect combination of a training on technical skills and a gaining a network that I still seek counsel from over the years. I learnt first hand knowledge of business and financial analysis, valuation and impact measurement. The trainers were extremely organised and had practical experience in quoting from their own investment deals done on the field. I would highly recommend attending this training as a comprehensive starting point to becoming a well-rounded practitioner of impact investing” – Govind Shivkumar,LGTVP – India 2012

“Impact investing is a growing industry and it is important to provide people with the resources they require. In order for the field to continue to advance, we need more programs like … the ANDE Investment Manager Training to prepare the next generation of impact investors.” – Isaac Gross, Capria – Brazil 2015
