Pacific RISE creates strong working relationships across the Pacific. One example is our Partnership with the Pacific Trade Invest Australia (PTI Australia) where we combine our resources to find Pacific businesses seeking new capital and connect them to investors seeking deals. Our support to creating a new Pacific Impact Investment market is relationship based and we build linkages between investors, funds, intermediaries and Pacific businesses that can deliver both financial and social returns. We provide practical support including grants and technical support, when required, and we are operating across fourteen Pacific Island Countries (PIC) to make them “investment ready” for impact investors.
