Origins and Track Record
Enclude traces its origins from two market leaders in the impact industry, Triodos Facet and ShoreBank International. Triodos is a leading bank focused on sustainability and the real economy. Its in-house consulting arm was Triodos Facet, which merged (in 2013) with the international advisory business of The ShoreBank Group, the pioneer of the community banking model in the United States. The combination of those businesses became Enclude, leveraging their combined 50-year track record of entrepreneurship development, inclusive finance, and professional services delivery.
Part of Palladium
In September 2018, Enclude was acquired by Palladium, a global impact firm working at the intersection of social progress and commercial growth. The combination will continue to develop innovative ways of financing international development. Expanding the suite of impact investments will leverage private capital to address the world’s greatest challenges, while generating a financial return for investors.
