Over the past 15 years, IIX has been at the forefront of financial innovation, mobilizing over $454 million and positively impacting more than 160 million lives—particularly women, girls, and gender minorities.

These achievements underscore their commitment and capability.

Now, IIX is excited to unveil the powerful data that drives initiatives. Powered by IIX Values, IIX Intelligence aggregates, quantifies, and benchmarks crucial data from sustainable MSMEs.

This platform offers unparalleled insights into gender diversity, climate action, ESG compliance, and community risk mitigation, making it the “Bloomberg Terminal” for the sustainable sector.

The Essential Role of IIX Intelligence in a financial landscape dominated by sustainability data from large entities, and the absence of robust data for micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) has been a critical barrier preventing MSMEs from being in the financial markets.

MSMEs are pivotal for sustainable development yet often overlooked by traditional financial players due to a lack of data.

IIX Intelligence fills this void by collecting, collating, and analyzing impact data from MSMEs to value their operations while empowering the stakeholders, investors, and policymakers with tools to make informed, impactful decisions.

Specifically, this platform will provide MSMEs the visibility and insights they need to attract sustainable investments and drive their growth.

A Vision for the Future “Today marks a significant leap forward in our journey,” stated Prof Durreen Shahnaz, founder and CEO of IIX.

“With IIX Intelligence, we are not just reflecting on 15 years of leadership in impact investing through measuring and valuing social and environmental impact in the financial market while propelling forward into a future where sustainable finance is accessible to all,” she said.

“This platform is the Bloomberg terminal of impact investing. Our commitment is to harness data’s power to democratize finance and empower a global network to drive transformative change,” she added.
