In early 2014, InterFinancial announced our strategic partnership with socially-focused financer and fund manager, Foresters Community Finance Limited (Foresters). Foresters is a non-profit organisation that has been delivering community finance and social investment products in Australia for the past 20 years. InterFinancial not only has an investment in Foresters, but also a significant shareholding in its impact investment subsidiary, Social Investments Australia. This partnership is aimed at enhancing the management and development of an innovative range of impact investment products for the Australian market.
Impact investment products are part of a growing global market trend delivering wholesale investors with an opportunity to use their capital to generate social, environmental or cultural outcomes, while generating an investment return. Impact investing provides InterFinancial with an opportunity to deploy the core skills and experience of our team into a sector that aligns with our core values, creating wealth for our clients and contributing to the community. Foresters and InterFinancial are committed to developing a strong impact investment market and will continue to seek further partnerships in order to achieve this goal.
