Over the summer, I hope to share more links to content I’ve digested in recent days that are relevant for those interested in Development Finance and the developing countries we invest in.

The content is not solely about impact investments, but addresses other information sources which are relevant in helping us frame a broad view about the evolving ecosystem and the news that affects it.

I am personally interested in a handful of countries in Asia, and this frames the bias you will see below.

Enjoy.
