Who We Are

Our strategic investment team includes dedicated and experienced business and investment professionals. We collaborate with the foundation’s program teams—working side-by-side to identify investment opportunities that produce the greatest impact.

With experience managing investments worldwide across sectors of every size and scale, our team is well-positioned to partner on investments that deliver real results to the world’s poorest populations.

Our team began in 2009 when the foundation sought new ways to connect the promise of philanthropy with the power of private enterprise in addressing urgent challenges in global development, global health and U.S. education. The Strategic Investment Fund (SIF) team launched with a $400 million pilot and has since grown to a $2 billion effort.
