SVA Social Impact Fund
The SVA Social Impact Fund (SIF) was a $9m fund established to provide loans and equity investments to Australian social enterprises. The SIF is now closed.
The fund was launched in 2012 with a seed funding grant from the Australian Government, matched with investment from 37 private investors.
The SIF provided loan and equity investments between $100,000 and $1.5m to ten social enterprises and housing projects. The SIF generated competitive returns (approximately 6.7% IRR per annum since inception) and created meaningful impact, as outlined in the table below.
The SVA Diversified Impact Fund also provided finance to organisations that make a meaningful social impact of the lives of people in Australia.
