Impact investing, i.e. investing with a social impact, provides double return on investment: it furthers an investor’s financial interests and has a positive impact on society and/or the environment. Impact investments usually only weakly correlate with traditional asset classes and are able to cushion the risks of a portfolio.
With microfinance, the young field of impact investing has already developed into an established asset class. With the set-up of the IIV Mikrofinanzfonds in 2011, the first such fund in Germany, we offer private and institutional investors the opportunity to generate steady moderate returns and make a positive social impact at the same time. Furthermore, our impact investing projects specialise in the fields of education, agriculture and social impact bonds.
