Wunder Capital strives to finance as many projects as possible for small and medium sized businesses. As of today, our purview is limited to projects in the United States, and because of regulatory constraints we can only accept investments from U.S. based investors. In the not too distant future, we'll be able to allow foreign investors to invest with Wunder Capital as well. But, in the meantime we want to offer some of our foreign users a solution.
We are proud to declare a partnership with Lumo. Lumo like Wunder Capital allows individuals to invest in renewable energy projects. Unlike Wunder Capital, Lumo's projects are located throughout France. And, because of different regulation standards, both accredited and non accredited investors can participate in Lumo's investments.
This partnership will allow more US and French citizens to discover financial products to do well and do good at the same time
– Alex Raguet, President of Lumo.
Wunder Capital receives a substantial amount of interest from foreign investors each month, and it's a pleasure to partner with a European market leader to translate investor interest in impact investing into actionable options in their respective countries. We are actively working to expand these types of relationships around the globe.
– Bryan Birsic, CEO of Wunder Capital.
After 10 years of investment banking in NYC, Alex Raguet went back to France in 2009 with the intuition crowdfunding could be a tool to speed up the clean energy transition. Lumo, created in 2012 in La Rochelle, has raised more than €2M of local green bonds for about 20 projects. Lumo has been incubated by Climate KIC since early 2015.
