Impact Investment Profiles Landing Page

The profiles are contributed by GIIN Investors’ Council members and written from the investors’ perspectives. Additional profiles will be regularly added to show more examples of the diversity of the impact investment market. Impact investments are investments made into companies, organizations, and funds with the intention to generate measurable social and environmental impact alongside a financial return. They can be made in both emerging and developed markets, and target a range of returns from below market to market rate, depending upon the circumstances.
The investments profiled on the GIIN website illustrate the many ways that investment capital can generate positive social and environmental impact alongside financial returns. The profiles include information on investee business models and outline why investors found the investment opportunities attractive and what they sought to achieve. Investments currently profiled on the GIIN website are:
  • Accion Frontier Investment Group’s investment in Vindhya e-Info-media to generate efficiency in microfinance services provision to reduce costs and benefit clients
  • Calvert Foundation’s investment in Craft3 to increase economic opportunity in disadvantaged communities
  • IGNIA Fund’s investment in Micel to expand access to basic services for poor and low-income people
  • Leapfrog Investments’ investment in AllLife to provide safety nets and springboards to low-income and vulnerable people through access to financial services
