The IFG aims at financial and social return
The objective of Investeringsfonds Groningen (IFG) is to invest in investment funds that invest all or part of their capital in SME companies in the province of Groningen. Based on this Fund-in-Fund principle, two types of return are sought: financial return and social return.
- Financial return is important to promote opportunities for collaboration with market parties, such as professional fund managers. The IFG seeks to realise that return and further strengthen the region. The return achieved is re-invested in funds.
- Social return entails strengthening of the economic structure in the province of Groningen in line with the market and creating direct and indirect employment. The involvement of market parties is essential to realise this objective as well.
