FOR CDFIs

A Stronger Investment Proposition

The Aeris rating is the industry’s gold standard for transparency and accountability to investors, grant makers, governments, and other stakeholders. With most major investors using Aeris Rating Reports and data to support their investment sourcing, due diligence, and monitoring, Aeris-rated and reporting institutions benefit from strengthened and streamlined investor interactions.

A Stronger Organization

Many rated institutions also use the ratings process to strengthen their operations by uncovering potential improvements identified through a rigorous, third-party analysis. All rated and reporting institutions in Aeris’ network receive access to longitudinal analytics on their organization, enabling them to track their performance over time—and relative to industry peers—against key performance indicators.
