Who we are
IFB is a membership association, with an overall goal to increase the share of impact capital in Belgium.
IFB integrates all capital providers who strive for measurable impact for people and planet. IFB welcomes all stakeholders in the impact finance ecosystem as members such as foundations, impact investors and traditional financiers.
IFB believes finance can and should be a force for good.
As we are at an inflection point in time, financiers should take up their responsibility and deliver for people and planet, alongside other stakeholders such as businesses, social purpose organizations, citizens and governments.
IFB's goal is to mobilize more impact-driven investment, capital and funding to seed and accelerate solutions addressing the needs of people and planet.
With a growing network, IFB connects all stakeholders in the Belgian impact finance ecosystem.
Testimonials from IFB's network
“Companies and governments around the world face serious societal and environmental issues. To address these challenges, we need a drastic shift in organisation and a major change in our global financing models.
All financial players must effectively come together, bridging impact investing and public sustainable finance, to the benefit of both humanity and our planet. DPAM’s enthusiasm for learning and becoming an impact catalyst has grown significantly during the Belgian Impact week.”
“The Belgian Impact Day was like a splash in the sea from which you emerge more refreshed than ever.
It was amazing to witness the shared passion of the entire impact finance sector in Belgium. This inspires for more collaboration, more hopeful initiatives, more impact.”
