Strong Returns, Measurable Impact

Fernando Alvarado & Alexa Blain

Deetken Impact

Deetken Impact is a Canadian impact investing firm.

Their priority is delivering strong, uncorrelated stable returns to clients. They differ from other firms in two striking ways: their focus is geographic and their mission is to make a social and environmental impact in  the Americas, with a deeper focus on Latin America and the Caribbean, a region which — like other emerging markets — is projected to grow at 2x the rate of advanced economies in the next 5 years. Access to capital is necessary to capture and nurture this growth. Two, they focus  investments on businesses and social enterprises that promote entrepreneurship, provide or improve access to basic services, and have a positive environmental impact. They seek-out untapped opportunities for growth in five different sectors that positively impact communities in the Americas.
