Madeira Global partners with Wildlife Conservation Society.

M2 EQUITYBITES-April 2, 2015-Madeira Global partners with Wildlife Conservation Society


Madeira Global said it has jointed with Wildlife Conservation Society as impact investment advisor to the society's conservation enterprise program. The partnership intends to further the society's mission to save wildlife and wild places across the globe.

Madeira Global founder and CEO Christina M. Alfonso said, "Impact investing goes beyond traditional philanthropy -- we believe it is the foundation for solving global problems -- and the aim is for our partnership with WCS to enable valuable funds to be strategically allocated in order to create lasting change."

WCS' collaboration with Madeira is part of its Conservation Enterprise Development Program (CEDP), which was launched in February 2012 to help sustainable market-based conservation enterprises across the world that benefit both people and wildlife. Madeira and WCS plan to combine organizational resources to create an advisory committee focused on evaluating and implementing the further development of CEDP and identifying other appropriate opportunities for collaboration across the WCS global network. The ultimate goal is to create an investment fund tailored to conservation-friendly businesses across WCS's biodiversity-rich landscapes and seascapes.

Madeira Global is a New York-based investment and advisory firm servicing qualified investors and institutions in the area of impact investing.

Wildlife Conservation Society saves wildlife and wild places worldwide through science, conservation action, education, and inspiring people to value nature.
