Capital Impact Partners and Incapital Reach $100 Million Milestone in Distribution of Capital Impact Investment Notes

ARLINGTON, Va. & CHICAGO,Ill. & BOCA RATON, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Capital Impact Partners today announced that it has achieved a
significant impact investing milestone by selling over $100 million of
Capital Impact Investment Notes through Incapital LLC’s nationwide
network of broker-dealers, institutions and financial advisors. Capital
Impact has seen robust interest in these AA-* rated Notes that are still
the only offering by a Community Development Financial Institution
(CDFI) that is S&P rated, DTC-settled and offered on a continuous basis
through brokerage accounts in almost all U.S. states.

Capital Impact Partners’ AA- fixed-rate Investment Notes are distributed
through Incapital’s Legacy™ Platform, which provides issuers and
financial professionals the opportunity to offer products to investors
that align financial goals with personal principals through values-based
investing. Incapital is a leading underwriter and distributor of fixed
income securities.

“Hitting this $100 million milestone illustrates investors’ strong
appetite to align their investments with their values and help advance
important social causes when offered the chance to purchase
investment-grade Notes like ours,” said Ellis Carr, President and CEO of
Capital Impact Partners. “Our national work helping to build more
equitable and inclusive communities is certainly amplified by investors’
trust in Capital Impact.”

“Achieving social returns with financial returns is an increasingly
important strategy among investors,” said Incapital CEO John DesPrez
III. “Our recent Fixed Income Investing Survey showed that close
to 100% of the newest generation of advisors (with 3 – 9 years of
tenure) are making social impact investing a standard part of most
client discussions, and 58% of those same advisors are looking for more
fixed income ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) investing
options. We are proud to offer Capital Impact Notes on our Legacy™

Capital Impact Partners’ Notes allow retail and institutional investors
to invest as little as $1,000 in the mission-driven organization’s
nationwide efforts to create social impact for underserved communities.
The Notes have been assigned a AA- rating by S&P Global, the world’s
leading provider of independent credit ratings. As unsecured debt,
Investment Notes are subject to the credit risk of the issuer. Because
the Notes are an investment intended to be held to maturity, there may
not be an active secondary market for them. Prospective investors should
read all of the offering documents before investing.

As a CDFI, Capital Impact Partners delivers financing and technical
assistance to organizations that create a strong fabric of high-quality
services that foster equity, opportunity and healthy communities
nationwide. You can learn more about Capital Impact’s work at
