Career

Legal counsel part-time, 20-30 hours (m/f)

Invest in Visions GmbH was founded in 2006 by Edda Schröder with the aim of giving institutional and private investors access to impact investment opportunities. In addition to providing financial returns, impact investments aim to obtain social returns, i.e. social and/or ecological benefits. This means that impact investments do not only meet the financial interests of an investor, they also have a positive impact on society and the environment. As a pioneer on the German market, Invest in Visions launched the IIV microfinance fund in 2011, the first such fund in Germany open to private investors.

In addition to our core area of microfinance, we also specialise in impact investment projects. Our many years of experience and extensive specialist network means we have significant expertise in the selection and evaluation of sustainable and social investment products.

When it comes to investments in microfinance institutions we work together with external consultants. Our investment team in Frankfurt deals with the entire investment process.
