SWISS SOCIAL STOCK EXCHANGE, THE FIRST LIQUID REGULATED GLOBAL IMPACT INVESTING MARKET

YOU ARE AN ENTREPRENEUR READY TO TAKE ON A FANTASTIC CHALLENGE !
Click here: SFG has incubated the project for a Swiss social stock exchange ready to be taken to commercial level.

SWISOX was born with the intent of addressing the inefficient impact investing market and the need for a dedicated liquid marketplace. Social enterprises are taking off as a new operating model addressing acute societal challenges that have gained a global consensus through the UN SDGs. In parallel, while the impact investment market is growing at an average annual rate of 20%, hurdles still prevent it from becoming mainstream, including, the sourcing and evaluation of investment opportunities, transaction sizes, viable exit options, and impact measurement.

With the large and growing market of medium-sized social enterprises globally and their significant lack of access to financing, coupled with a strong and growing trend in impact investments, there lies an ideal opportunity for the SWISOX.

WHY GENEVA

Geneva is singularly positioned to develop an international stock exchange specially dedicated to social enterprises. With a long humanitarian tradition recognized internationally, Geneva remains associated, in the minds of many people living abroad, as a city committed to humanitarian action. At the same time, Geneva has a stronghold in the global world of finance, as it remains one of the top financial centers in the world and an essential bastion of private wealth management. Thanks to the unique ecosystem that brings together international organizations, leading banks, the Lake Geneva region has been at the center of many innovations in sustainable finance in recent years and remains a world benchmark in terms of impact investing.

SWISOX will bring new innovations such as specialized social indices and new social finance analysis tools.
