Impact Investing in Asia Pacific Discussion

Socialedge has a very interesting discussion on Impact Investing in Asia Pacific, hosted by Yvonne Li of Avantage Ventures (based in Hong Kong). Li opens up the discussion by pointing out that there are many high-net worth individuals in the Asia Pacific with assets invested in the region. She then asks:

Should impact investing be positioned as an opportunity to show faith in a social entrepreneur in a frontier market, as an opportunity to tap bottom of the pyramid consumers as highlighted in the Next 4 Billion report, or be seen to provide underserved populations with increased access to key goods and services?
