Mediterrania Capital Partners Founder and CEO Albert Alsina on Wednesday shared that he recently took part in two global impact investing conferences held in Tokyo, Japan.

The first event, held by the Japanese Association of Impact Investing, brought together a gathering of global thought leaders within the realm of impact investing. Mr Alsina said that it is “poised to make an indelible mark on the sustainable finance landscape”.

The Malta-headquartered company’s team featured as guest speakers in the conference, with Mr Alsina addressing an audience comprising of impact enthusiasts, discerning investors, and dedicated changemakers.

“I shared profound insights into the vast potential and pivotal importance of impact investments in our contemporary world,” he added.

Additionally, the Mr Alsina noted that the week in Tokyo proved to be “very rewarding”, particularly since he also had the opportunity to participating in PRI in Person, a responsible investment conference which brings together over 1,000 delegates each year. The event was also held in Tokyo, and it stands as a “powerful testament to the global significance of this asset class”, he explained.

The event was opened by Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, who Mr Alsina said managed to passionately underscore the “critical role of impact investments in fulfilling the fiduciary duty to investors”.

“His words resonated deeply, reaffirming Japan’s steadfast commitment to nurturing a sustainable financial ecosystem,” he affirmed.

“Prime Minister Kishida’s eloquent speech encapsulated the very essence of impact investing – a driving force that directs capital towards innovative solutions to address pressing global challenges,” Mr Alsina continued.

He concluded that his speech proved to be an “impassioned call to action” that resonates not only within Japan, but “reverberates globally, urging the world to invest in initiatives that create positive change for our planet and communities”.

Mr Alsina has more than 20 years of experience in private equity, marked by the founding of Mediterrania Capital Partners in 2013. The company, which actively invests in Africa under regulations set by the Malta Financial Services Authority (MFSA), Mauritius’s Financial Services Commission (FSC), and Spain’s Comisión Nacional del Mercado de Valores, has made strategic investments in 15 portfolio companies.
