Comprehensive overview of market trends in microfinance offshore investments
The 2016 Symbiotics MIV Survey is an annual study which aims to provide comprehensive market trends and peer group analysis on microfinance offshore investments. Its primary function is to allow microfinance investors and fund managers to benchmark themselves and improve their knowledge of the industry. It also allows academia researchers and companies to have access to unique information about microfinance funds over a 10-year period.
The Survey, in its 10th edition, is based on December 2015 financial and social performance indicators reported by nearly all microfinance investment vehicles (MIVs). Participating MIVs report their data based on the CGAP MIV Disclosure Guidelines (2010) and the Microfinance Investment Vehicles Disclosure Guidelines: Additional Indicators (2015) developed in 2015 by Symbiotics in collaboration with other microfinance asset managers.
