Rhiza Capital

IMPACT INVESTING WITH
REAL-WORLD CONSTRAINTS

Long Case Study

Need

Make changes to impact investment products in a way that accounts for real-world constraints.

Outcome

A new impact investment product based member preferences that balances practical factors such as risk, return, impact and term.

In this joint project, Rhiza Capital and the Sunshine Coast Credit Union used Ethelo to engage more than 600 participants in designing their favourite impact investment vehicle. Ethelo enabled participants to carefully consider the tradeoff between impact and financial return.

The results will help create a new generation of impact investing products for the credit union
to make available to its members.

It worked just the way that I hoped it would. We were able to clarify what respondents were saying and the motives behind it. And, Ethelo did the data analysis for us.
