Impact Exchange provides a unique opportunity for Asian and African SEs to raise investment capital to scale and deepen their social and environmental impact while offering Impact Investors the opportunity to invest in and trade securities issued by SEs that reflect their values.

It operates under the SEM’s regulatory framework and IIX provides oversight of social and environmental requirements and obligations. All issuers must demonstrate positive social and environmental impact to be listed on Impact Exchange.
