Alterra Impact Finance GmbH is a Swiss-based advisory firm and investment consultant for social impact investments. Alterra advises an impact investment partnership and selected clients. For the impact investment partnership, we take an holistic view and focus investments on basic necessities for the human being.
We believe that impact investing is an important tool for development that benefits not only enterprises, but investors and society as such. Therefore, Altera also supports the emergence of impact investing through education, consulting and industry events. Impact investments are now being integrated by leading US and European banks, pension funds, foundations and family offices into traditional investment portfolios.
Investments explicitly reward positive externalities- or impact- of an enterprise through patient and supportive investments. These positive social and environmental externalities are central to the overall investment focus of Alterra.
