PEARSON AFFORDABLE LEARNING FUND
PALF makes significant minority equity investments in for-profit companies to meet the growing demand for affordable education across the developing world.
Pearson invests $50 million in PALF
Founded in 2012 with $15 million of initial Pearson capital, PALF manages a portfolio of 10 investments across 7 countries in Asia and Africa that currently reaches over 125,000 students. With a vision of helping millions of the world’s poorest children access a high quality education in a cost-effective way, PALF supports companies that demonstrate the role the private sector can play. In January we announced Pearson will invest a further $50 million over the next 3 years. This is a testament to Pearson’s commitment to educate children in the developing world and brings our total assets under management to $80m. Read more about Pearson's investment in PALF >
