We use innovative finance, fund management and impact investing to scale projects with high societal and environmental impact, while offering attractive returns to our investors.

KOIS works with private, public and philanthropic sector clients to create impact solutions helping underserved communities around the globe.

In innovative finance, We help our clients from the advisory stage on which innovative finance tool is best fitted, to creating the right partnerships and implementing blended finance mechanisms on the field. 

In fund management, we co-create, co-manage and advise investment funds specialized in impact investing. We also directly invest in companies providing social and environmental impact, together with an attractive financial return.

At KOIS, we dedicate our time to projects we believe will bring solutions to our world’s current issues. This lead us to build a widespread experience in many domains. However, over the years, we’ve developed a strong track record in three big and often overlapping sectors. 

Education & Employment

By 2030, 2Bn jobs will disappear due to automation. Their replacements will require specific skills. This is an issue both for jobseekers and employers, 40% of whom find it already difficult to recruit people with the skills they need. ​At KOIS, we believe that inclusive quality education, and technical & vocational training, will be key to equip young people with relevant skills for the future.

Environment

11% of the world’s population is currently vulnerable to climate change impacts. This can result in migration, health issues and economic crises that will affect both developed & under-developed countries. Through our projects, we seek to show that  innovative environmental finance can unlock capital for projects where it was not deemed relevant before.

Health

In 2019, around half the world’s 7.3Bn people were not receiving the essential health services they needed. At KOIS, we believe that achieving universal access to quality health services is possible. To do so, we harness the power of the public, philanthropic and private sectors together. We do so by designing innovative financial instruments to address key health issues.
