Blue River is Australia's independent impact investment services firm. We help mobilise capital towards the rapidly growing local and global impact investment markets. We are a profit with purpose business. 


The sole purpose of Blue River is to undertake projects and deals that generate economic returns for investors but equally achieve positive and measurable social or environmental outcomes. 


Measuring financial return has been standard market practice since investment markets were first established. Having the appropriate tools to be able to measure positive social or environmental outcomes is the exciting new development in investment markets.


As an independent impact market intermediary and deal facilitator, Blue River leverages the expertise of its experienced team and partnership arrangements to make impact markets more accessible to the global investment community.


Blue River is an ideas incubator. It assists clients in creating impact investment products and then finding the appropriate wholesale investors to invest in the products.
