Impact Investments

…for a better future

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 microfinance fund 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. Currently, only institutional clients can invest in our extended investment spectrum.
