APRIL 19, 2017 — Washington, D.C. — Financial technology provider ImpactUs today announced the onboarding of the first issuers to its impact investing platform, ImpactUs Marketplace. The Marketplace is a community-driven full-service platform offering institutions, individuals and financial advisors an extensive range of private impact investing opportunities.
The four early-adopter issuers* on the platform are mission-driven institutions dedicated to building strong, healthy and successful communities.
*Some of these issuers’ offerings are only available to accredited investors. Investing in private investments requires high risk tolerance, low liquidity concerns, and long-term commitments. Investors must be able to afford to lose their entire investment.
Currently in a limited access, invite-only launch phase, ImpactUs Marketplace is open to accredited investors provided with designated access codes. Those interested in signing up for an invitation to the platform can request a demo and access code at www.ImpactUsMarketplace.com.
Led by impact investing veterans Reginald Stanley and Liz Sessler, ImpactUs provides the advanced infrastructure to seamlessly connect investors and advisors with mission-driven institutions, providing end-to-end transactional and capital management capabilities. As a broker dealer, ImpactUs harnesses technology to make impact investing accessible to all.
The foundational support necessary to launch ImpactUs was provided by some of the leading organizations in the social impact sphere, including MacArthur Foundation, Ford Foundation, Enterprise Community Partners and City First Enterprises.
“We are incredibly excited to onboard our first set of issuers to ImpactUs Marketplace,” said Reginald Stanley, CEO of ImpactUs. “These mission-driven institutions are an absolute crucial component to our community and have been key partners in building our shared vision of harnessing advanced technology to simplify and grow impact investing.”
“Collaboration and community has always been core to ImpactUs’ mission,” said Liz Sessler, Vice President of ImpactUs. “As such, we’re happy to welcome our first set of issuers to the platform so that impact investors can begin investing in positive changes to communities worldwide.”
