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. At the end of 2020, the Fund had a volume of almost EUR 200 million and was investing in 71 microfinance institutions from 35 countries. It thereby reached nearly 65,000 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.
