LeapFrog Investments

Event CoverageFeb 11, 2011

In coordination with FitzGibbon Media, Planet Vox provided coverage of the event held last April by LeapFrog Investments to announce its final close on $135 million for investments in Africa and Asia - a record amount that made LeapFrog the largest investor in microinsurance worldwide. The fund announced major new investors including J.P. Morgan, TIAA-CREF, and Proparco as well as the Waterloo Foundation and the ACE Group.

"As leaders from around the world and across sectors gather here at IFC headquarters," said Andrew Kuper, President and Founder of LeapFrog, "we mark a historic moment: the birth of a new social-purpose asset class that will generate profits for investors while lifting tens of millions out of poverty."
