A broad network of investors
SVA has strong relationships with a broad network of 200 impact investors who share a passion to make a difference with their capital: they seek a social return as well as an appropriate financial return.
Our investors include institutional investors, philanthropic foundations and individual investors, and investments range from $50,000 to several million.
SVA manages the $70 million Social Impact Investment Trust under a mandate from HESTA, to fund investments that generate both a measurable social impact and a market-based financial return. The Trust’s largest commitment to date is $19 million to help finance the development of Australia’s first dementia village in Glenorchy Tasmania. HESTA and SVA are building a pipeline of investments designed to grow Australia’s impact investing market by attracting other institutional investors.
