Objectives & outreach

Main objective of the Fund is to provide financial access to people and small entrepreneurs in developing countries. It primarily invests in microfinance institutions that – besides offering basic financial products – aim at making a strong social impact. By end of 2019, the Fund had reached a volume of 165 million Euros and was investing in 68 microfinance institutions from 35 countries. It thereby reached about 52,000 borrowers, more than half of which are women and clients from rural areas, respectively.

FS Impact Finance provides the entire range of fund management services from investment management, risk management, portfolio management and transaction management to FX/hedging, compliance and AML.

FS Impact Finance has been a reliable partner

since setting up our Microfinance Fund in 2015. As Fund Manager they provide our investors a high investment ratio and an excellent portfolio quality – while always ensuring positive social impact.

As Germany’s leading social bank, we are very pleased working with a team that completely shares our mission and vision. I personally appreciate their integrity, sincerity and hands-on mentality. GLS Bank looks forward to many more years of successful cooperation.
