PG Impact Investments Makes Mezzanine Debt Investment into i-Finance Leasing, Expanding Financial Inclusion in Cambodia

A cross-border Private Equity team advised PG Impact Investments on its mezzanine debt investment into i-Finance Leasing PLC.

PG Impact Investments (backed by Partners Group) is a private sector, mission-driven, global investment firm specializing in investment solutions aimed at delivering financial returns as well as creating a positive social and/or environmental impact. All profits from the business activities of PG Impact Investments are transferred to PG Impact Investments Foundation, which supports social initiatives and social business ventures that otherwise would not receive funding through commercial investors or investment funds.
