ImpactUs Welcomes First Issuers to its Impact Investing Marketplace

APRIL 19, 2017 — Washington, D.C. — Financial technology provider ImpactUs today announced the onboarding of the first issuers to its impact investing platform, ImpactUs Marketplace. The Marketplace is a community-driven full-service platform offering institutions, individuals and financial advisors an extensive range of private impact investing opportunities.

The four early-adopter issuers* on the platform are mission-driven institutions dedicated to building strong, healthy and successful communities.

  • Iroquois Valley Farms: A restorative farmland finance company providing land access to organic family farmers, with a focus on the next generation.
  • Shared Interest: Utilizes impact investors’ capital as collateral to unlock local capital in Africa and build capacity for entrepreneurs in low-income communities.
  • Envest Microfinance: Uses capital to enable universal access to financial services to create the conditions necessary to empower the world’s low-income people to meet their basic needs.
  • CommonBond Communities: The largest non-profit provider of affordable housing with services in the Upper Midwest, using impact capital to acquire and preserve multi-family housing for moderate-income workforce households who support the economy and our communities.

*Some of these issuers’ offerings are only available to accredited investors. Investing in private investments requires high risk tolerance, low liquidity concerns, and long-term commitments. Investors must be able to afford to lose their entire investment.

Currently in a limited access, invite-only launch phase, ImpactUs Marketplace is open to accredited investors provided with designated access codes. Those interested in signing up for an invitation to the platform can request a demo and access code at www.ImpactUsMarketplace.com.
