Our Mission
We harness the power of finance to make a positive difference for people and planet. As an impact asset manager, we responsibly invest public and private capital where it is needed to address the world’s social and environmental challenges.

We believe that economic returns go hand-in-hand with positive social and environmental results. To this end, we develop and advise impact investment funds that focus on small business development, energy and resource efficiency, conservation of biodiversity, and climate action.

What Makes Us Special

Blended finance structures for amplified capacity

Our impact funds pioneered the “public-private partnership” model. This structure enables public monies to mobilize funding from private investors for development

Local expertise for international reach

Finance in Motion’s highly international staff operate from 16 offices around the world. Our local professionals have on-the-ground knowledge of regional market needs. 

Comprehensive offering of diverse financial instruments for various needs

Our investment team is adept at deploying the full suite of financial instruments available in order to cover a broad range of needs – from senior debt to equity, from loan capital for ongoing operations to enabling greenfield investments.  

Holistic approach for enduring results

We mobilize more than just capital. Our customized technical assistance helps anchor and multiply impact by enhancing the conditions that foster development. Through thought leadership and engagement in peer associations, we build the impact investment market and are constantly seeking new opportunities to make finance a force for good.

Impact management for mission assurance

We want our efforts to deliver tangible results, and implement strict monitoring to ensure that our impact investments are doing their job. We regularly analyze our investments’ development performance and commission independent impact studies.

Walking the talk

Alongside the impact funds, Finance in Motion is also involved in advancing positive change through direct equity investments.

As a signatory of the Operating Principles for Impact Management (Impact Principles) Finance in Motion underwent an independent impact management system audit, achieving strong ratings. Read our Disclosure Statement for the Operating Principles for Impact Management
