Our mission


At SVX Mexico, as a committed B Corporation, we cultivate social and environmental impact investments.

We provide education services, knowledge generation, and design and implementation of investment strategies for companies, investors, civil society organizations and the public sector.

SVX Americas

SVX MX is part of a network of sister companies, SVX US and SVX in Canada, with whom we have had a alliance since our inception.

SVX MX is autonomous, but we can always count on the collaboration and synergy of our counterparts from the Americas. Additionally, we launched a multi-year impact investing ecosystem-building program with SVX Colombia in October 2022 thanks to the support of Global Affairs Canada.

Our story

SVX was founded in Canada as part of the MaRS Center for Impact Investing in collaboration with the Toronto Stock Exchange (TMX), and we have brought it to Mexico, adapting its model and strategy to the conditions of the Mexican market since 2014. SVX also operates in United States as of 2016 and Colombia as of 2022. We also have a wide network of allies, mentors, and institutions across the globe that support and actively participate in the services provided by SVX MX.

Holistic Impact Investment Spectrum


The Impact Investment Paradigm


What makes us different

Co-creation, collaboration
and interdependence
We collaboratively design strategies, actively involving and engaging all team members to collectively achieve the desired impact.
Creativity and innovation
in finance
We understand the different ways to leverage investments, from grants to guarantees and equity. We stand out for our technical capabilities that make this strategic diversity possible.
Systemic thinking
We seek to understand the connections and interactions between the various elements that make up an integral system, rather than viewing it in separate parts.
