Investing in Cooperatives through Coop Exchange

A New Avenue for Impactful Investments

Coop Exchange is building a unique platform for both institutional and (once regulated) individual investors to invest in cooperatives with potential for significant impact and sustainable market level returns. Our platform will provide a diverse range of cooperative listings, each rigorously selected for their financial stability, and as a result of their commitment to cooperative values and principles – their environmental, social and governance (ESG) score, and alignment with sustainable development goals (SDGs).

  • Discover a curated selection of cooperatives that will become available on our platform, complete with detailed impact metrics and financial data.
  • Each listing will include comprehensive information on the cooperative’s operations, ESG credentials, and financial performance.
  • Coop Exchange emphasises transparency in all areas of reporting. This is a core value of cooperatives, known as the ethical values of honesty and openness, which forms part of the definition of a cooperative.
  • Only cooperatives that have passed a rigorous listing process will be allowed to list on our platform, and will be subject to regular reporting reviewed by our team. Our assessment criteria focus on:
  • environmental, social and governance factors;
  • alignment with the Cooperative identity; and
  • impact of the cooperative, providing clear insights for investors.

Investor Opportunities

  • Institutional Investors: Access a market with liquidity and market-level sustainable returns, coupled with sustainable and impact investing opportunities. Invest in equity with dividend returns or opt for debt instruments such as cooperative bonds, including cooperative green bonds.
  • Individual Investors: Engage in impactful investing with the added benefit of liquidity. Options include direct investment in listed cooperatives or indirect investment through mutuals and financial cooperatives offering diversified 'coop funds'.
  • Cooperative Investors: Ideal for those already knowledgeable about cooperatives, looking to support and grow the cooperative economy.
  • Impact Investors: For investors seeking ESG-compliant opportunities with measurable impact.

Coop Exchange represents a transformative approach to cooperative investment, aligning financial returns with environmental, social and governance impact, catering to a wide range of investors looking to make a difference.
