Frequently Asked Questions


Registration & Onboarding

Our investors come from a wide range of backgrounds, including high net worth individuals, family offices, foundations, institutions and funds.

 

There are two main criteria to qualify as an impact investor on the Impact Partners platform:

(1) You seek to make investments that promote social and/or environmental benefits.

(2) You meet the legal definition of an 'accredited', 'institutional,' 'professional' and/or 'qualified' investor in your jurisdiction of residence and in Singapore that will allow you to take part in private placement investments under the laws and regulations of your own jurisdiction and of Singapore.

 

In Singapore, an Accredited Investor is an individual whose net personal assets exceed SGD $2 million or whose income in the preceding 12 months is at least SGD $300,000, or a corporation with net assets in excess of SGD $10 million per its most recently audited balance sheet. Institutional Investors include banks, pension funds, collective investment schemes, fund managers, insurance companies, and most holders of a capital markets license.

 

In the United States, an Accredited Investor, as defined by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), is an individual whose gross income exceeded USD $200,000 in each of the two most recent years or joint income with a spouse or partner exceeded USD $300,000 for those years and a reasonable expectation of the same income level in the current year, or an individual whose net worth, or joint net worth with a spouse or partner exceeds USD $1,000,000, excluding the primary residence. On 26 August 2020, the SEC amended the definition of Accredited Investor to include individuals who have certain professional certifications, designations, or credentials, individuals who are “knowledgeable employees” of a fund with respect to private investments, SEC and state-registered investment advisers, family offices with at least USD $5 million in assets under management.


For further clarification, please refer to the Investor Agreement and Terms and Conditions (T&Cs) sections of the  Investor Registration Form.


If you meet the above criteria, please sign up for access to the Impact Partners platform by completing the Investor Registration Form.


Once you complete the Investor Registration Form and we are able to verify you as accredited, you will be assigned a username and password. Due to the need to conduct due diligence on registrants, there may be a time lag of several days from when you register to when you can log in. Please be patient, we are working on your account.

 

The Impact Partners team verifies your eligibility and carries out additional “know your client" due diligence using the information provided by you during registration. The due diligence may include internal background checks, public searches and other inquiries when appropriate. Please be ready to accept a call from the team if they need to get in touch with you to verify any information. Once the due diligence is completed, your account will be activated. You will then be notified by email to log in to the Impact Partners platform, where you can access investment opportunities anytime.

Fees

There is no fee for investors to join the Impact Partners platform. There are some premium services on the platform, such as educational courses, which may be chargeable separately. These are useful resources that will make you an even sharper impact investor.

IIX does not charge the investors any fees for investments made via the Impact Partners platform.

 

However, IIX charges the Impact Enterprise (IE) a small fee once the deal is closed. This fee may be paid by the IE to IIX using some of the funds raised from the investor.

Investment Process

An Impact Enterprise (IE) is a company that creates positive social and/or environmental impact through its operations while being financially sustainable.

    

At IIX we believe that at the core of a sustainable business is the impact they are creating. That is why we have all the enterprises measure their impact using our proprietary Impact Assessment technology IIX Values™. IIX Values comprises of questions and related analysis regarding the mission of the enterprise, its business model, impact of the operation on the various stakeholders, and any risk emerging from its business practices. The IEs that have completed our IIX Values™ Impact Report will be displayed first in the search results when investors browse for investment opportunities.

Yes, an investor can co-invest with other investors on Impact Partners. However, the ability to co-invest may vary on a case-by-case basis depending on the IE’s funding requirements and/or the lead investor's preference on the deal structure.


If you would like to co-invest in a deal, please contact the IE through the Impact Partners platform to indicate your interest. If you as the lead investor would like to bring in co-investors who are not yet registered as investors on the Impact Partners platform, these co-investors must first register for membership themselves on Impact Partners.

 

Sharing specific information relating to the IEs listed on the website with non-members or introducing non-members to the IE directly would be considered a breach of the T&Cs of the platform. We want our IEs to be treated fairly and to do that, we rely on the ethics and integrity of our impact investors to comply with the T&Cs of the platform. Please do the right thing and set a good example for other impact investors.

Impact Partners does not currently specify a minimum investment size. However, as a guideline, most IEs listed on the platform will be looking to raise at least USD $100,000. This amount may come from one or several investors, so individual investment amounts may be substantially less.

Impact Partners profiles investment opportunities in IEs seeking capital to fund their growth activities.


As with any investment, the financial return that the investor achieves will depend on a variety of factors including the financial performance of the enterprise and the availability of a ready buyer if the investor wishes to exit the investment. Over the past decade, the average financial return of the equity investments that were facilitated through the platform averaged between 5% to 20%, depending on both internal and external factors. Along with the financial return, the social and environmental returns produced by the IEs are also significant, impacting millions of lives and avoiding millions of tons of carbon emissions.

 

To help you understand, measure, and monitor the overall impact created by your portfolio of companies, we use our proprietary Impact Assessment Framework incorporated in IIX Values impact assessment technology. For more information, please visit www.iixvalues.com. We also work directly with investors to manage and monitor the impact of their portfolio. If you are interested in finding out more about that, please email us at info@iixglobal.com.

All communication pertaining to the deal between the investors and the Impact Enterprises (IEs) must be done through the Impact Partners platform.


It would be considered a breach of the T&Cs if an investor approaches any IE directly without informing Impact Partners. The T&Cs apply to any investment made in an IE within two years of it being listed on the Impact Partners platform. To re-emphasize, please use the platform for all your communication with the IE.

Yes, Impact Partners showcases investment opportunities from many countries across the globe. Thus, an investor from a country with overseas investment restrictions can utilize Impact Partners to invest in an IE based in the investor's own country. Once the investment process begins, local lawyers can be engaged to structure the deal appropriately. All of the investments are conducted in USD. IIX has a network of local lawyers in all of the countries the IEs are operating in. If you would like access to this lawyer network, please contact us.

IIX Institute offers various courses for investors seeking to gain knowledge and skills on Impact Investing. From the courses, investors will gain knowledge and skills needed to play a catalytic role in Impact Investing and innovative finance. Investors can learn a unique approach to impact investing that enables them to balance risk, return, and impact that can help and improve their investment process and boost their effectiveness as impact investors.

Disclaimer: IIX is not authorized to represent investees or impact investors. IIX does not advise on the merits or risks of investing nor does IIX make offers to sell or trade any securities. No action taken by IIX with respect to the Impact Partners platform shall be construed to constitute the provision of corporate finance advice or an offer or sale of securities in any jurisdiction.
