For a brighter future
Impact investing is an investment approach based on doubling returns through social effects: Impact investing satisfies the financial interests of an investment and has measurably positive effects on society and/or the environment. Impact investments normally correlate little with other classes of investments and can soften portfolio risk. From the still relatively novel discipline of impact investing, microfinance has emerged as an established investment class of its own relatively quickly. Through IIV Mikrofinanzfonds, the first microfinance fund established in Germany in 2011, we offer steady modest returns combined with a social commitment to private and institutional investors. Microcredit enables our borrowers to engage in income-generating activities to build an economic livelihood. Additionally, we made the IIV Mikrofinanz-Anleihe (Bearer Bond) available to asset managers who may not invest in alternative investment funds under Section 295 of the German Investment Code [Kapitalanlagegesetzbuch, KAGB]. Furthermore, we specialize in investments in impact investing in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), education and renewable energy. We are currently developing additional financing options.

Sustainable Development Goals
In its 2030 Agenda, the United Nations specified 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for sustainable social, economic and environmental development for all countries of the world. These goals were adopted in 2015 and shall be achieved by 2030. Through our investments in microfinance and financial inclusion, we contribute to the achievement of 5 of these 17 Sustainable Development Goals. Learn more about the SDG‘s.
