Preferences and Demand for a Fixed Income Social-Impact Investment Report from AMEG.

Paper | November 30, 2014

USAID’s Asia and the Middle East Economic Growth Best Practices Project conducted market research to determine (1) the investment interests of Indian diaspora living in the U.S. and (2) the conditions they would invest in a fixed-income security that finances Indian SMEs in social-impact sectors.

USAID’s Asia and the Middle East Economic Growth Best Practices (AMEG) Project is designed to support USAID missions in developing effective and efficient economic growth programs that address technical and strategic challenges specific to countries in which USAID operates in Asia and the Middle East. Through AMEG, USAID is able to conduct rapid and strategic economic growth assessments, pilot innovative approaches in economic growth programming, and consolidate and disseminate best practices in economic growth projects learned from USAID implementation throughout the world.
