Underserved Markets

Some of the challenges we face

The U.S. ranks 23rd out of 30 developed countries for inequality

Around 40m Americans don't have proper access to financial services

The bottom 50% of earners have seen no income growth since the 1970s

The richest people live ten years longer than the poorest

How are we helping to solve this problem?

Since 2002, our Underserved Markets focus has led us to invest in businesses, property developments and social sector organisations that are seeking to create jobs, broaden opportunity and provide higher-quality, more accessible services in less affluent areas – from healthcare to low-cost fitness to vet care.
