The French are seduced by solidarity finance
Over a million people in France have chosen to invest some of their savings in products that effectively help fight social exclusion, contribute to social cohesion or to sustainable development.
There are three channels for solidarity finance:
- Bank deposits
- Employee savings
- Funds collected by companies involved in social and solidarity economy.
2015 saw record inflows, with an additional 344,000 solidarity investments subscribed, totalling €1.62bn. At December 31, 2015* overall solidarity finance amounted to close to €8.46bn for an increase of 24% over the preceding year.
