Since 2013, our investments have consistently outperformed banks' returns to their investors ... and continue to do so under our Social Impact Bond program at 5% interest per year.
Our Social Impact Bonds provide working capital to developing country entrepreneurs and businesses through our platform partners.
Our Social Impact Bond investors receive 20 equal quarterly payments of principal and interest over 5 years ... instead of a single balloon payment at the end of 5 years.
Our quarterly reporting and independent audits transparently detail both the deployment of capital and performance of loans from our Social Impact Bond program.
Entrepreneurs in developing countries with scalable business platforms face significant difficulties in raising growth capital, ranging from a flat refusal from local financial partners to support them to being forced to accept exorbitant borrowing rates (in some cases up to 60% per year).
Since 2013 we have worked closely with developing country platform partners to expand the opportunities for businesses to scale growth in order to help level the playing field for entrepreneurs and unleash their potential.
Our proven system has already assisted hundreds of entrepreneurs to create impact in their communities in countries around the world - and to educate investors that doing well and doing good don't need to be mutually exclusive.
We believe that those who are more fortunate have an obligation to assist those less fortunate to unleash their potential.
So we created a new way to lend that's better for everyone: our lenders, the entrepreneurs, humanity at large and the planet.
Because we ourselves belong to all of these groups.
Lending with Genuine Interest is a simple, time-tested process ... modeled on our years of lending engagement with
our carefully curated platform partners.

Our social impact bonds are currently paying 5% interest over 5 years, with 20 equal quarterly payments consisting of both principal and interest. We issue social bonds in several currencies, which are currently USD, EUR and SGD. The total amount of each bond is set to start at 200,000 units (USD, EUR, SGD), and we are looking to increase that amount over time.
You can invest up to the maximum amount of the bond, in tranches of 1000 units (USD, EUR, SGD). You’ll need a minimum of 5000 units (USD, EUR, SGD) to get started.
We have been working since 2013 with a number of platform organisations in developing countries. Our social bonds fund their efforts to improve lives through their work. You can find out more about them in our Partners section.
We are currently supporting several impact initiatives around the world, and will add more as we grow. You can find out more in our Partners section.
As with all investments, your capital is at risk. You should carefully consider all risks associated with investing in Genuine Interest against the potential risks, financial benefits and social benefits before you invest with us.
