Silk Invest was founded in 2008 as an innovative investment boutique with the main objective of opening new routes for investors. At that time, emerging and frontier markets were the most attractive investment opportunities. While those markets remain central to the firm’s offering, over the years Silk Invest has also developed new strategies and partnerships tied to emerging themes, which will be central to our future growth.
As part of our responsible investing and sustainability commitment, we have had a diverse team of professionals from the start was an early signatory to the UN Principles of Responsible Investing in 2009, and incorporated gender-lens investing principles in 2013.
In 2020, the partnership with Kallisto Partners strengthened Silk Invest’s position as the premier frontier and emerging markets specialists while providing a platform to launch new, innovative, and impactful strategies suited for today’s rapidly evolving world.
