Investing as an organisation

With over 40 years of experience, Oikocredit is one of the leading (and oldest) private sources of social investment in the world.

A good home for liquid or long-term risk capital

UK Investment (in Euros or Sterling) is by way of depository receipts in the Oikocredit International Share Foundation (OISF). As a 'non-readily realisable security' with no secondary market, these depository receipts are particularly suitable for organisations seeking to deploy a portion of their liquid or long-term risk capital into social investment products in order to satisfy objectives of corporate social responsibility (CSR), or to enhance their social missions.  

Open to all organisations

Oikocredit has always relied on strong support from organisational investment across all sectors. Of our 53,000 world-wide investors, 6000 of these are organisations, including some 600 who are members of the Oikocredit Cooperative.

All types of organisations can invest in Oikocredit - charities, trusts and foundations, Housing Trusts, corporates, SMEs, Family Offices, social enterprises, faith-based organisations, university endowment funds, pension funds and insurers.
