Research Initiatives

We originate content and participate in conversations that influence policy and investment.

For select markets, we believe that there is a need to curate information in a way that is more useful to capital sources. Accordingly, our efforts focus on areas of the world that are least understood, as well as on the need to give voice to those whose insights and knowledge is overlooked or difficult to find.

By providing useful information and tools, and by helping spread the knowledge of those in the best position to be knowledgeable, our objective is not only to mitigate risk but also to assist in closing the gap between actual and perceived risk.

Investment Perspectives Initiative on LDCs

Least Developed Countries (LDCs) are those that exhibit the lowest indicators of socioeconomic development. The LDC concept originated in the late 1960s, and the first group of LDCs was selected by the United Nations in a 1971 resolution.

Today, 47 countries across Africa, Asia, Oceania, and the Americas fall into the category based on poverty, human resources, and economic vulnerability variables selected by the UN.

Ambershore’s Investment Perspectives Initiative (IPI) on LDCs creates uniquely organized content and insights that put a microscope over their development challenges and opportunities.

Please contact us at if you are interested in co-developing or otherwise supporting these efforts.

The Development Finance Center

The Development Finance Center (DFC) is designed to give a platform to those whose opinions deserve more attention. Ambershore works with academics and practitioners whose work in areas such as impact investing, sustainable finance, and economic development is rooted in local experience and expertise.

Some individuals will be selected to become a DFC Fellow, a formal affiliation in which Ambershore Partners and research staff collaborate in developing reports, briefs, or opinion-editorials for publication in media outlets in the United States or China.
