Diaspora & Sustainable Investments
Many countries, such as Morocco, Tunisia, Nepal or the Philippines, rely heavily on remittances from their migrant workers. Much of it goes into direct consumption with continued poverty when the worker returns. Savings schemes and investment funds are increasingly seen as options for social security of the migrant worker and business capital. They link an interested Diaspora to productive investments in their countries of origin. Such investments may range from direct business ventures assisted through NGOs or donor interventions to special purpose vehicles for large scale managed investments.
We provide know-how about promising support mechanisms to members of the Diaspora being interested in development activities in their countries of origin despite the fact that many of them already carry European or American passports and are fully integrated into their ‘’new’’ country.
