Investment approach

How we work

Child-lens investing

Save the Children Global Ventures is creating the first series of child-focused investment funds. Our decision-making integrates considerations of children's rights and well-being across our investment processes to advance positive outcomes for children.

We provide a range of financial tools to enhance the positive outcomes our partners achieve for children. Our Children's Impact Multiplier Fund provides patient and catalytic capital for highly impactful opportunities that traditional finance might overlook. In tandem, we advise a suite of commercially-structured funds, each mobilising significant capital within our focus areas.

Areas of investment


Our child-lens investment strategy spans areas that will have the most direct impact for children: education, health, nutrition, WASH, child protection and related infrastructure needed to enable resilience, social impact and/or social mobility.
