Our mission is to shift capital towards investments that blend financial returns with deep social and environmental impact, and to lead by example in using all of our resources to create the world we want to live in.
We provide investment opportunities in commercial real estate, renewable energy infrastructure and venture capital. The opportunities are available to wholesale clients only, and target market-rate financial returns in combination with significant environmental and social benefits. The company has also established a foundation, funded through its management fees and profits, to deploy capital for impact-first investments, traditional philanthropy and venture philanthropy.
IIG regularly reports to investors on its financial, environmental and social performance. IIG and its related entities co-invest in each of the wholesale investor syndicates managed by the company.
The company was founded in 2013 and made its first acquisition, a $5.25 million real estate investment, in June that year. As of December 2017, IIG had more than $730 million in assets under management (including assets under development) across its three primary business classes.
It employs more than 30 people, with offices in St Kilda, Melbourne, and Surry Hills, Sydney. The company’s management team has extensive experience working as executives in some of Australia’s, and the world’s, leading wealth management, finance, property, and renewable energy organisations. IIG’s clients include high net worth individuals, self-managed superannuation funds, family offices, foundations and an institutional investor.
IIG, as one of Australia’s first certified B Corporations, believes in using the power of business to drive positive social and environmental change. It has met high standards of transparency, governance and accountability, as assessed by the B Lab international standards committee.
IIG is an active and leading contributor to Australia’s public conversations about responsible investing and impact investing. The company is a member of the Responsible Investment Association of Australasia and the Global Impact Investing Network.
These underpin everything we do, and everything we aim for.
