The world needs more impact private investments

When I founded Trill Impact in early 2019, it had become clear to me that private markets have an important role to play in solving the societal and environmental challenges our world is facing. My purpose was to build an Impact House as a force for positive change, primarily through private investments but also by leveraging our know-how to influence society more broadly.

Transforming the idea of Trill Impact into reality requires the right stakeholders. It has been critical not only to recruit professionals with the right skill-set and value-based mindset, but also to collaborate with like-minded partners who share our sense of urgency and passion for contributing to making the world a better place. Today, we have a highly experienced team working together and in partnership with Nordea Asset Management and Developing World Markets, eager to realize Trill Impact's purpose and vision.

We are also thrilled at the positive feedback we have received thus far from portfolio companies regarding our impact and value creation models and analyses. We believe that, together with management and dedicated experts, we have accelerated the impact journey by contributing competence, connections, capital and our unique Trill Impact culture. The ambition is to reach each company’s full value and impact potential.

Trill Impact is now a pioneering Impact House with more than EUR 1 billion in assets under management across its mid-market private equity and microfinance investment advisory strategies. We will continue to leverage on innovative solutions aiming to deliver attractive market returns and create lasting impact for the benefit of investors, businesses and society at large. 

Today, impact private investments represent a very limited part of the capital being invested in the world – the world needs so much more to solve the challenges we all face.

Creative thinkers who want to contribute to a better world – join us!
