Capital Impact Partners Named to ImpactAssets 50 For Seventh Straight Year, Retains Emeritus Impact Manager Distinction

The ImpactAssets 50 is a publicly available, searchable resource of impact investment fund managers who deliver social and environmental impact as well as financial returns

March 18, 2024 (Arlington, VA) – For the seventh straight year, Capital Impact Partners has been selected for the ImpactAssets 50 – a free, annual database for impact investors, family offices, corporations, foundations, and institutional investors that features a diversified listing of private capital fund managers delivering social and environmental impact as well as financial returns.

Capital Impact Partners also remains on ImpactAssets’ Emeritus Impact Managers list, which illuminates impact fund managers that have achieved consistent recognition for at least five years on the ImpactAssets 50. Only 46 of the 155 fund managers on this year’s ImpactAssets 50 have received the Emeritus Impact Managers label.

Capital Impact Partners, a leading mission-driven Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI), began offering its Capital Impact Investment Notes in 2017. The Investment Notes allow retail and institutional investors the opportunity to invest in the organization’s nationwide efforts to create social impact for disinvested communities.

Available for as low as $1,000, individual and institutional investors can purchase Investment Notes through their brokerage account. In its 42-year history, Capital Impact Partners has invested more than $3 billion to serve 6 million people and created more than 38,000 jobs in sectors critical to building equitable communities.

“The ImpactAssets 50 is a valuable database for investors who are seeking both financial and social returns on their investments. We are honored to be included for seven years in a row,” said Jaret Ings, senior director of finance and treasurer for Capital Impact Partners. Capital Impact Partners is one of the Momentus Capital branded family of organizations, which also includes CDC Small Business Finance and Ventures Lending Technologies, among other organizations. “The support we receive from investors helps us continue this important work, which is centered on closing the racial wealth gap and seeking community-led solutions so that everyone can have access to the capital and opportunities they deserve.”

Impact investing fills the funding gap between investors and communities. For example, it creates more opportunities for emerging developers of color, expands access to healthy foods, and increases the amount of affordable housing.

Funding from the Investment Notes helps expand Capital Impact’s national footprint to increase access to critical social services, including health care, education, healthy foods, affordable housing, cooperatives, and dignified aging facilities. To date, individuals and organizations have invested more than $400 million in Capital Impact Investment Notes.

In September 2022, Fitch Ratings assigned an A+ rating with a stable outlook to Capital Impact Partners and the issuance of up to $275 million of its Capital Impact Investment Notes (Notes). Fitch affirmed those ratings in July 2023. In September 2023, S&P Global Ratings raised its issuer credit rating (ICR) on Capital Impact Partners and its long-term rating on the Investment Notes from “A” to “A+” with a stable outlook.1
