Social investment, or impact investment as it is also known, can provide a vital funding stream to charities and social enterprises, and offers funders a new way to support the causes and organisations they care about. But this new style of finance is complex and, since it is designed to achieve social as well as financial returns, it doesn’t suit everyone.
We have advised clients ranging from Princes Regeneration Trust and Scope, to Cheyne and Big Society Capital. In the last year, 1 in 2 of our consulting clients have used our services before and 97% of our clients say they would recommend us to others.
