Initiative Ireland

At Initiative Ireland we believe that finance should be honest, fair and inclusive. We also believe that investments should offer competitive returns and security but also deliver clear societal and environmental impact. 

That's why we work with our Impact Investor Community, to co-fund property development loans across Ireland, helping to tackle the housing crisis and address environmental challenges. Together we finance the construction of energy-efficient social housing and affordable housing projects nationwide. We offer fair terms to our borrowers and we help our community to earn real returns of 5% to 8% APR, while also delivering a real societal and environmental impact.

All loans are secured against Irish Property, providing an expected minimum of 133% collateral security for each loan. Our specialist team manages all loan from end-to-end, in an ethical and professional manner. Our shared goal is simple, 'Earn Good, Do Good'.
