Is the Netherlands the new UK in European impact investing?



Britain has been the undeniable leader of the movement on the continent, providing a regulatory model, institutions such as Big Society Capital, and innovative approaches like tax relief funds and social impact bonds.

Post-Brexit, the Netherlands is a good contender to lead the movement. The Dutch development bank, FMO, is eager to lead, both through its own investments in energy, agribusiness and financial inclusion, and by convening other players.

Recently, 18 Dutch financial institutions outlined a plan to align their investments with the U.N. Global Goals.

Sustainable aquaculture investor Aqua-Spark, the Pymwymic (Put Your Money Where Your Meaning Is Community) investor network and Triodos Investment Management are part of the country’s active impact scene.
