Triodos Investment Management is a 100% subsidiary of Triodos Bank, one of the world’s leading sustainable banks. Since 1980, the bank has pioneered a groundbreaking, commercially successful approach to money that values people, the environment and culture, as well as profit.

Triodos Investment Management manages four microfinance funds: Triodos-Doen, Hivos-Triodos Fund, Triodos Fair Share Fund, and Triodos SICAV II - Triodos Microfinance Fund. All funds have similar objectives but different risk profiles and funding structures, which means we can support microfinance institutions at different stages of development.

It provides finance - loans and equity - to around 95 upcoming and well-established microfinance institutions in 45 countries that demonstrate a sustainable approach toward providing financial services to underserved client groups. In the quest for innovation, Triodos Investment Management looks for opportunities that tie together financial services, renewable energy and sustainable agriculture.
