Rhiza* Capital is investing in our future.

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.

What Impact Investing is:

Impact investments are investments made into companies, organizations, and funds with the intention to generate social and environmental impact alongside a financial return.

Impact investments can be made in both emerging and developed markets, and target a range of returns from below market to market rate, depending upon the circumstances. The growing impact investment market provides capital to address the world’s most pressing challenges in sectors such as sustainable agriculture, clean technology, microfinance, and affordable and accessible basic services including housing, healthcare, and education.

What is the market potential of impact investing?

Impact investing has attracted increasing interest among investors who are allocating more capital to impact investments year-over-year. What does this mean for the social and environmental good that might be funded by impact investing now and in the future?
