MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--TriLinc Global, LLC (“TriLinc”) has been selected as one of the “Real Leaders Top 100 Impact Companies” of 2019. This list, in its inaugural year, was developed in collaboration by Real Leaders, Big Path Capital, B Lab, Bain Capital, KPMG, and Mintz Levin to show that business can thrive as a force for good and rank the positive impact of companies that are leveraging the engine of capitalism for the greater good. TriLinc ranked 9th out of the 100 companies listed. Applicants were evaluated based on social and environmental impact and ranked using The B Lab assessment metrics as well as growth rate and scale. Applicants were required to provide verification of growth and practices.
“We are very honored to be included on this list and to be recognized for our mission to harness the power of the capital markets in helping to solve global challenges facing our society,” said Gloria Nelund, CEO of TriLinc. “TriLinc is excited to be working alongside impact industry peers to move impact investing further into the mainstream,” stated Gloria.
TriLinc, through its registered investment advisers, pursues an impact investing strategy that provides growth-stage loans and trade finance to established small and medium enterprises (“SMEs”) in developing economies where access to affordable capital is significantly limited. Impact investing is defined as investing with the specific objective of achieving a competitive financial return as well as creating positive, measurable impact in communities across the globe.
