Impact Investing Ghana, the National Advisory Board for Impact Investing in Ghana is pleased to announce the appointment of Mirabelle Moreaux, Investment Director of Injaro Investments, to its Board of Directors.

Impact Investing Ghana is the Ghana National Advisory Board for Impact Investing. We are an independent private-sector led initiative promoting sustainable development and advancing the development of the impact investment ecosystem in Ghana.

The GSG’s National Advisory Boards (NABs) currently cover 33 countries and provide a global platform to drive investment and increase visibility for its members globally. IIGh aims at tackling Ghana’s pressing social and environmental challenges by driving more capital to deliver real impact and by supporting the growth of Impact Investing across West Africa. We are a local platform representing all the stakeholder groups needed to redirect significant capital flows towards social and environmental impact. Private-sector led, yet in close partnership with the national government, we raise awareness, create market intelligence, change policies, and mobilize additional financial resources for public good.

Alex Asiedu, chair of the board of Impact Investing said “I am personally delighted to welcome Mirabelle to the board of Impact Investing Ghana. Her experience and understanding of the impact investing space is outstanding. Injaro is a pioneering leader in the impact investing movement in Ghana and we are very fortunate to have her join the board as we work to grow the sector exponentially.  As we announce Mirabelle’s appointment, I would like to take the opportunity to thank Angela Kyeremanten-Jimoh most warmly for her service on the board.”

I am thrilled to join the IIGh at this critical time when the organization is increasing engagement with asset owners to unlock more funds into impact investing. I believe the sector holds a sustainable approach to yielding both financial returns as well as significant positive outcomes for underserved people and the environment.
