Social Responsibility

ILCC provides a unique, socially responsible, solid investment opportunity for individuals, investment firms, local or regional banks, funders and Indian nations. Recovering and consolidating the tribal land base is a top priority for many Indian nations who recognize that full ownership and control of their lands and assets is the key to economic security and self-determination. Investing in ILCC offers a way to help Native nations secure their economies, cultures and communities.

 

Competitive Returns

ILCC offers competitive interest rates and provides higher-than-average returns for its investors than current short-term and long-term CDs and money market accounts. In addition to financial rewards, there are other benefits to investing in ILCC that extend far beyond the bottom line.
