We keep innovating
ACTIAM launched its first institutional funds in microfinancing as early as 2007 and 2008: ACTIAM Institutional Microfinance Fund I and II respectively. Both funds have continuously outperformed the SMX Microfinance Index. As a thought leader in impact investing, we keep looking for new solutions for example in the area of food and agriculture. Due to a growing world population and increasing prosperity, the demand for energy and food rises accordingly.
