Lendahand and Triodos Investment Management join forces

Triodos Investment Management and Lendahand are embarking on a new partnership. The collaboration aims to channel more capital from individual investors towards impactful companies in emerging countries. The partnership focuses on initiatives in the energy and agriculture sectors that contribute to the transition to sustainable and inclusive societies.

Individual investors accelerate sustainable transition

With the new partnership, Lendahand and Triodos Investment Management aim to connect more individual investors with impactful entrepreneurs in the energy and agriculture sectors to accelerate the sustainable transition in emerging countries. 

Hadewych Kuiper, Managing Director Investments at Triodos Investment Management, says: "Individual investors play a crucial role in mobilizing more capital towards positive change. Therefore, we are delighted about our partnership with Lendahand. The crowdfunding platform offers individual investors the unique opportunity to engage with sustainable investment projects directly. We look forward to contributing to a more sustainable and inclusive society together with Lendahand."


Breakthrough in impact investing

Lendahand – a 10-year impact crowdfunding platform in the private domain – will be responsible for crowdfunding, communication with crowd investors, and transactions. Triodos Investment Management will assist in the selection and monitoring of loans, leveraging its experience in investing in emerging countries. It will mainly involve direct loans to high-impact investors, and all projects will focus on renewable energy and sustainable agriculture. The goal is to jointly invest in 10 to 15 projects per year. Koen The, CEO of Lendahand, states: "This partnership marks a breakthrough for the future of crowdfunding and impact investments. Triodos Investment Management's involvement in selecting and monitoring loans opens the door for crowdfunders to impactful companies that were previously out of their reach."

Lendahand will soon launch the first crowdfunding campaign for a project proposed by Triodos Investment Management. Keep an eye out on our projects page for more!
