Alvadam is a global group of independent corporations, including a Dutch ecclesiastical entity (kerkelijke rechtspersoon). Albert A. van Daalen is the founder and executive minister of the group, and non-executive minister of affiliated and subsidiary corporations. Since mid-November 2018, Alvadam wants to contribute to the aforementioned process by facilitating impact investing around the world.


What is impact investing?

Impact investments seeks to generate a measurable, beneficial social or environmental impact alongside a financial return. Impact investments provide capital to address social and/or environmental issues. They can be made in either emerging or developed markets, and depending on the goals of the investors.

Impact investments often brings together capital and expertise from the public, private and not-for-profit sectors to achieve social and/or environmental objectives. Investments can be made into businesses, nonprofits, or funds in industries such as renewable energy, basis services including housing, healthcare, and education, micro-finance, and sustainable agriculture.

Impact investing occurs across asset classes and investment amounts. Among the best-known mechanism is private equity or venture capital. Impact investments are structured similarly to those in the rest of the venture capital community. Investors may take an active role mentoring or leading the growth of the company, similar to the way a venture capital firm assists in the growth of an early-stage company. Hedge funds and private equity funds may also pursue impact investing strategies.

Impact investing can also help organizations become self-sufficient by enabling them to carry out their projects and initiatives without having to rely heavily on donations and state subsidies.
