About IIX:

Impact Investment Exchange (IIX) is a pioneer in the global impact investing movement, dedicated to reshaping finance for sustainable development with a focus on gender equality and climate action. For over a decade, we’ve been building the sustainable investing market, from establishing the world’s largest crowdfunding platform for impact investing (Impact Partners™), operating award-winning enterprise technical assistance programs, creating innovative financial products such as the Women’s Livelihood Bond™ Series, and establishing an Impact Institute and Research & Advisory. Our work has spanned 60 countries, unlocked US$418 million of private-sector capital, positively impacted over 160 million direct and household lives, and avoided over 1.9 million metric tons of carbon. The base of IIX’s work is IIX Values™, an impact verification tech solution measuring investments’ social and environmental impact to the last mile, amplifying the voices of the underserved. In 2022, we launched the Orange Movement™ and within that created a new asset class, Orange Bond, to unlock $10 billion in capital markets by 2030, impacting 100 million women, girls, and gender minorities. Recognized with numerous accolades, including the Oslo Business for Peace and UN Global Climate Action Award, our efforts are propelled by our team’s ‘PREM’ values—passion, resilience, equity, and mavericks—bringing meaningful change to Global South communities and the 99%.
