Rhiza Capital is an impact investment group of companies. We build impact portfolios guided by the values of our investors, partners and community. Our investments are directed toward Canadian local and social ventures that have a demonstrable intention to generate a measurable, beneficial social or environmental impact alongside a financial return.
Rhiza was co-founded by Community Futures Sunshine Coast (CFSC), Sunshine Coast Credit Union (SCCU) and Powell River Community Investment Corporation (PRCIC). These partners are joining forces to construct investment products in order to open the door of impact investing to individuals, family offices, foundations and credit unions across Canada.
Here is a video introduction to our local, impact investing strategy:
*Rhiza, Greek in origin, refers to a root structure. Rhiza Capital is intent on growing local economies and healthy communities by connecting root capital to impact ventures.
Impact investments are investments made into companies, organizations, and funds with the intention to generate social and environmental impact alongside a financial return.
