Fairtrade Access Fund

Open for investment

The Fairtrade Access Fund provides farmers' cooperatives and associations the trade finance, working capital and long-term loans they need to manage their operations, renew their farms or adopt new technologies and equipment. The Fund was launched in 2012 under the advisement of Incofin Investment Management by the fund sponsors Incofin cvso, Fairtrade International, Grameen Foundation and KfW.  The fund began operations in Latin America and has expanded into Africa.  It has the ambition to be a global fund. The Fund offers investors a competitive financial target return with the possibility of a yearly dividend. Its open-ended structure gives investors flexibility to redeem their shares. Incofin IM was asked by the sponsors to manage the Fairtrade Access Fund and will take the lead role in the further fundraising for the Fairtrade Access Fund.  The Fairtrade Access Fund is a USD denominated fund.
