CIS Completes Fundraising for Second Catholic Impact Fund
BOSTON, MA – June 7, 2023 – Catholic Investment Services (CIS) announced today that it has taken another major step forward in its private market strategies for Catholic institutional investors through a significant subscription in a newly closed $370 million impact fund.
The CIS Catholic Impact Fund II (CIF II) has subscribed for $58.7 million, or approximately 16%, of total committed capital for the Hamilton Lane Impact Fund II (HLIF II), which recently held its final close for $370 million.
Using a Catholic lens, CIF II will invest in businesses globally, notably those that focus on clean energy transition, sustainable processes, health and wellness, and community development. HLIF has made a total of nine investments thus far, and while not necessarily indicative of future results, has had strong performance out of the gate, breaking the “J-curve” in just three quarters.
“We are excited by the high level of interest shown by Catholic institutions in our second impact strategy” said CIS CEO Tom Lanctot. “We are investing in companies that not only are doing great things for the world, but are also great businesses offering Catholic institutions potentially attractive investment returns.”
CIS provides investment management solutions for a wide variety of Catholic organizations and their consultants/advisors, including dioceses, religious orders, educational institutions, social service providers, healthcare systems and foundations. All of its investors are non-profits.
Please note CIS Catholic Impact Fund II is closed and no longer available for new investments.
