Sail Ventures’ mission is to provide investors with long-term sustainable returns.
Our Values reflect our beliefs and priorities as individuals and as a company. We are committed to maintaining integrity and humility towards all stakeholders, being consistent in our actions, remaining focused on shared interests, and being curious... always.
Sail Ventures aims to leverage our expertise in the field of innovative financing and emerging markets, and our relationships across the private and public sectors, to execute investments that deliver material and lasting impact in line with United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (“SDGs”).
Impact investment funds
Sail Ventures is the Investment Advisor of &Green. The Fund was launched in July 2017 with USD 100 million of capital from the anchor investor, but aims to reach USD 400 million of committed capital by 2020. Its mission is to prove that financing inclusive, sustainable and deforestation-free commodity production can be commercially viable and replicable — thus strengthening the case for a new rural development paradigm that protects valuable forest and peatlands and promotes high-productivity agriculture.
Investment advisory services
We advise clients on numerous innovative financing challenges, including:
1. Blended finance transactions
2. Sustainability and climate finance in emerging and frontier markets
3. Investment strategies for impact funds
Tropical Forest Alliance 2020

And does so by tackling the drivers of tropical deforestation using a range of market, policy and communication approaches. Sail Ventures is a partner of TFA 2020.
“We maintain an exhaustive focus on creating long-term sustainable returns and support our clients to turn ideas into financed on-the-ground execution.”
