LeapFrog makes an impact through private equity investments in high-growth, purpose-driven businesses in some of the world’s fastest growing markets. An investment by LeapFrog is a commitment to true partnership. We actively employ our knowledge and experience, along with our capital, to support the leadership teams and boards of the businesses we back. We help leaders and owners to meet their ambitious growth, profitability and impact targets.
LeapFrog focuses on high-growth markets in Africa and South and Southeast Asia. These regions are the focus of our strategy because of the scale and growth in these markets, and because they are regions where our team has lived and worked for 16 years on average. Our Investment Team uses its deep local professional and personal networks to bring a distinctive angle in sourcing and assessing investment opportunities.
With a focus on the emerging consumer and with integrated financial and social goals, LeapFrog is well-positioned to invest in the rise of a new emerging consumer class. Our portfolio increases access to financial services and healthcare in markets where these sectors are heavily underpenetrated; for example, insurance penetration averages just 3% and access to modern medication less than 30% in emerging markets.
