Indigenous Investment Principles

The Indigenous Investment Principles (IIP) aim to provide an investment framework for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations and communities to create intergenerational wealth.

Representatives from more than 40 Indigenous organisations worked together to create the principles, which address some of the common identified challenges and opportunities their respective organisations have faced in establishing effective governance and investment strategies.

The Principles are designed to assist organisations and communities with varying levels of financial knowledge, social and financial infrastructure to assess their individual circumstances and formulate an investment strategy that best meets their needs and aspirations.
