Impact Investment Group is a leading Australian impact investment funds manager. We want to prove that finance can be a force for good. That finance can be great for people and great for the planet. We believe that aiming for systemic change is our path to meaningful environmental and social impact. We therefore work in the context of broader impact themes.
We see a future where energy is 100% renewable, affordable and universally accessible. We’ve helped fund wind and solar farms across Australia.
We believe it is important to harness business and investment to support and empower people. Through our startup and real estate investments we are supporting and co-designing positive outcomes for people and a range of communities.
Regenerated Land, Water and Air
We know we are interdependent with, and intrinsically connected to, our natural environment. We’re investing in agriculture, renewable energy and startups that help restore the vitality of our ecological systems, including how we regenerate the our soil and land, value water as a natural resource, and contribute to cleaner air.
As impact investors, we aim for financial returns alongside measurable, intentional environment and/or social benefits. We help individuals, family offices, foundations and superannuation funds invest in line with their values, and support them to move further towards impact.
We’re fully owned by the family office of Danny Almagor and Berry Liberman.
Our head office is located on the traditional lands of the Boon Wurrung people of the Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging.

Our vision for reconciliation
We acknowledge the shared history between the First Nations peoples of Australia and other Australians as well as the need to acknowledge and heal past and ongoing injustices. We envision an Australia that embraces unity and recognizes the strengths and beauty of diversity as part of what makes Australian culture unique and rich.
As Impact Investment fund managers, we have an opportunity to use our existing relationships with stakeholders to give voice to First Nations Peoples. Acknowledging that our investments impact land, water, air, and people, we are seeking to embed reconciliation as part of our asset management activities and broader organisational culture. We intend to build authentic relationships that prioritise opportunities for learning, trust, care, and mutual benefit.
