Goodwell Investments has hired Berg De Bleecker as Investor Relations Director. 

De Bleecker joins from ASN Bank where she served as Senior Manager Investment Funds. 

Prior to ASN she performed similar functions at Triodos Investment Management and PGGM.

Els Boerhof, Partner at Goodwell, said: “Our network of investors is unique. From breakthrough impact investors, entrepreneurs, foundations to family offices. And increasingly also development banks, pension funds, banks, and other institutional investors. Berg knows the needs of these target audiences well and brings specific know how and experience to the table.”

Goodwell Investments is a pioneering investment firm focused on financial inclusion, fin-tech and inclusive growth in sectors providing basic goods and services and income generation opportunities to the underserved.

The firm is currently fundraising for its new fund uMunthu, a €100m fund for Sub-Saharan Africa that will invest in inclusive growth businesses in financial services, energy, transport, and agri. 

The first €15m have already been committed allowing six new investments in Africa.

De Bleecker said: “uMunthu is a strong proposition for institutional investors that strive for market rate financial returns and positive social impact. Goodwell has built solid funds over the last 10 years and from its conception has invested in the development of strong local teams.” 

“The company has developed a positive and trustworthy reputation with both investors and investees as manager of impactful Private Equity in India and Africa. Goodwell is the type of ambitious investor in the inclusive growth sector that I want to contribute to.”
