How We Work
Social Finance was set up in 2007 to help build a social investment market in the UK. Social Finance brings together individuals with substantial expertise in finance, strategy consultancy and the social sector to drive innovative, sustainable and scalable investment propositions. We combine a deep understanding of social issues with expertise in financial modelling, business case development and investment structuring.
Social Finance's initial team supported the work of the Commission on Unclaimed Assets, which recommended the establishment of a Social Investment Bank in March 2007. Social Finance's first objective was to explore in more detail the idea of a Social Investment Bank and establish the level of need for such services to develop the social investment market in the UK.
Social Finance provides a range of financial advisory services to help build the social investment market. We are dedicated to finding ways to raise capital through robust investment propositions. We are committed to driving financial innovation in the sector by designing investment products that deliver measurable social and financial return. We also have a broad range of research and advisory capabilities with which to enhance understanding and engagement with the social investor market.
