Tundra Sustainable Frontier Fund invests in emerging and frontier markets, with a particular focus on low-income and lower-middle-income countries such as Vietnam, Pakistan, Egypt, Sri Lanka, and Indonesia. These are countries where development is driven by a young population with increased opportunities for education, better working conditions, and a higher standard of living. Our vision is to create good financial returns and planetary relief through long-term sustainable investments.
Low-income and lower-middle-income countries today make up 50% of the world’s population. According to the UN’s population forecasts, in 50 years they will make up nearly two-thirds. Today, their per capita emissions are about 1/10 of the world’s richest countries. Everyone understands that our earth cannot afford a scenario where their emissions reach the level that the world’s richest countries are showing today. Creating financial returns through sustainable business models will therefore be an absolute necessity to become a successful and profitable company. It is these companies we are trying to find to generate financial returns for our unitholders. We call it investing for the future. To work towards our vision, we primarily start from the 17 global goals (SDGs) within the framework of Agenda 2030 meaning that the fund selects companies that have a positive impact on the society in which they operate. Tundra’s absolute focus is to help our portfolio companies with their integration into the world economy and make them more attractive to foreign investors. We believe this approach is beneficial both to our unitholders, the societies in which we invest, and the world at large.
