Mission Markets wants to change the world and they see investment crowdfunding playing a significant role. The new platform launched this week looking to provide both institutional and private investors a community and portal for impact investments. A growing number of individuals and organizations are realizing that seeking a financial return while making favorable social /environmental statements are not mutually exclusive. It is a good thing to capture a return while funding a company that wants to make the world a better place.
Mission Markets is providing institutional investors the opportunity to research and make investments focused specific social outcomes. Anyone may participate in their community of research and forums.
”Impact investing’s time has come. Investors in all categories are seeking investments aligned with their personal values. They believe it is important to earn good financial returns, but it is also important investments support favorable social and environmental outcomes. These outcomes might include improvements in education, health, community development, or sustainability. Mission Markets provides access to information, technology, and investment offerings to help investors make informed choices,” said Ken Marienau, Mission Markets CEO.
Mission Markets will also offer limited partnerships and fund products allowing their members to invest in professionally managed funds. These funds may be sector or theme specific
Some of the impact funds (e.g. TriLinc Global Impact Fund and Greenbacker Renewable Energy Fund) are publicly registered securities, which allow qualified individual investors who may not meet the “accredited investor” tests to initially invest as little as $2000.
New York City based Mission Markets was founded back in 2009. With the launch of Mission Markets new capabilities, individual, advised, and institutional investors have a marketplace to find companies that support their social or environmental investment objectives.
Mission Markets, founded in 2009 by Michael Van Patten, is a leading financial marketplace for impact investments.
