Specialist for Impact Investing
Invest in Visions
Invest in Visions GmbH was founded by Edda Schröder in 2006 with the aim of providing access to impact investments to institutional and private investors. In addition to financial yields, these investments also offer social returns. We made a name for ourselves as one of the first microfinance investors and, in 2011, achieved an important milestone with the establishment of IIV Mikrofinanzfonds (Microfinance Fund) as the first fund of this class of investment in Germany for private and institutional investors. In addition to microfinance, we are also involved education, renewable energy (decentral projects), sustainable agriculture and the financing of small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), general social projects and pay-for-performance bonds. Our product solutions consist of funds and bearer bonds (IIV Mikrofinanz-Anleihe.) Our focus is always on newly industrialized and developing countries. Our experience and specialized network provide us with extensive expertise for the selection and evaluation of sustainable and social investment products.
Impact-oriented investments for a better future
Mission of the company
Together with our partners, we want to improve the socio-economic environment of the countries and regions in which we invest commercially. Our portfolio management team therefore reviews the profitability, sustainability, ethics and suitability of social and geo-political structures of investments in accordance with our internal investment rules. We focus on where the greatest needs and effects are: newly industrialized and developing countries. Since our business was founded, we have been committed to the aim of making sustainable investments in development and economic assistance accessible to a broad group of investors. We see ourselves as a link between these - sometimes very different - worlds of our investors and the businesses we support. We are a reliable partner who can be counted on even during difficult market phases - because we believe in the purpose and understand the long term of our investments.
