Impact Investing Element

1What positive impact will my investments have?
Your investment with Impact Capital funds will refinance student loans held by graduates of America’s top undergraduate, graduate and professional programs. Borrowers who refinance with Impact Capital Funds typically will save 10%-50% compared to their original interest rates. This results in lower monthly payments and/or less interest paid through the life of the loan. Lower payments and a lower IR may allow borrowers to achieve milestones like buying a home, starting to save for retirement, among others. 

50% of all returns above the 4% hurdle rate can be donated to a college or university selected by the investor. The educational institution will use these funds to generate scholarships for low-income undergraduate students. As a result, needy students will have to borrow less to afford college.
