Jean-Philippe de Schrevel
Founder and Managing Partner
Bamboo Capital Partners, Switzerland
Jean-Philippe de Schrevel is the Founder and a Managing Partner at Bamboo Capital Partners. Jean-Philippe has dedicated most of his career to the development of the “impact investing” field of which he is considered to be a global pioneer, having launched 8 investment funds and raised over a billion USD to date across a variety of asset classes (fixed income, private equity, venture capital, structured finance) and many sectors (microfinance, energy, healthcare, education, agribusiness, affordable housing). Jean-Philippe’s journey stems from early personal exposure to extreme poverty while travelling, working and living in Eastern Europe, Africa, Asia and Latin America.
His work objectives are driven by deeply rooted faith and values and an ambition to contribute to solving at scale some of the most critical problems of our planet. Realizing “investments that matter” is the path he has chosen to follow some 20 years ago. Jean-Philippe notably co-founded in 2001 BlueOrchard Finance (a pioneer commercial lender to Microfinance banks) and worked at McKinsey & Co, the UN as well as for various NGOs.
He holds a MBA from the Wharton School of Business and speaks fluently French, English and Spanish.
