Impact Investing

Investments for the common good that generate returns. PHINEO’s activities in this field

Impact invest­ments are invest­ments made with the inten­tion to cre­ate a mea­sur­able pos­i­tive impact on soci­ety along­side a finan­cial return.

We believe that invest­ment cap­i­tal can be an effec­tive dri­ver for social and eco­log­i­cal inno­va­tion. This makes impact invest­ing a strat­e­gy for vision­ar­ies who want to go beyond cap­i­tal growth and invest for the ben­e­fit of soci­ety. We help to con­nect ideas and cap­i­tal to address the most press­ing chal­lenges of our time – and to con­tribute to the Unit­ed Nations Sus­tain­able Devel­op­ment Goals. This works: The Ger­man impact invest­ment mar­ket has already grown to 2.9 bil­lion Euro.

We sup­port our part­ners and clients in … 

  • ana­lyz­ing mar­kets as a basis for trans­par­ent invest­ment decisions
  • iden­ti­fy­ing and assess­ing invest­ment opportunities
  • devel­op­ing and imple­ment­ing impact-ori­ent­ed invest­ment strategies
  • mon­i­tor­ing, ana­lyz­ing and report­ing the impact of invest­ment pro­grams and funds
  • devel­op­ing and real­iz­ing inno­v­a­tive impact invest­ing mod­els such as out­comes based mod­els (i.e. Social Impact Bonds and Devel­op­ment Impact Bonds)
  • mobi­liz­ing pri­vate and pub­lic funds for impact invest­ments and form­ing part­ner­ships across sec­tors, both nation­al­ly and internationally
  • advis­ing pur­pose-dri­ven enter­pris­es that are seek­ing to address social or eco­log­i­cal chal­lenges with a viable busi­ness case
  • pro­vid­ing essen­tial knowl­edge about impact investing

    This is what defines us:

    • We are among the impact invest­ing pio­neers in Ger­many
    • We com­bine impact and finan­cial know-how in one team, includ­ing expe­ri­ence in the fields of pri­vate equi­ty, invest­ment bank­ing and ven­ture capital.
