Every Quona investment delivers impact that advances financial inclusion.

Our impact framework is built to measure financial inclusion and is aligned with universally accepted impact measurement frameworks and tools, including the Impact Measurement Project, United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, and IRIS+.

 

But we don’t stop there.

 

We’ve engaged BlueMark, a leading provider of impact verification services, to conduct an independent assessment of our impact management systems and processes.

 

Quona is also:

  • A signatory to the IFC’s Operating Principles for Impact Management
  • An ImpactAssets 50 Fund Manager for both 2020 and 2021
  • Part of the GIIN’s Financial Inclusion Benchmark Design Team
