IAM LLC seeks to invest with organizations that target underserved localities in the areas of affordable housing, small businesses, community development and revitalization, health care, education, women’s equality, and the environment, among others. IAM LLC believes these investments may have a positive direct impact on underserved localities, which is an important principle of our investment and business philosophy.

IAM LLC works to achieve its inclusive finance mission by investing in short-term notes and certificates of deposit issued by microfinance institutions (MFIs) and non-specialized microfinance service providers, including:

  • Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs)
