As champions of better business, ethical investing has been close to our hearts for over two decades.
If you’re investing for positive social and/or environmental impact - whether in the UK or in the Global South - or if you’re a civil society organisation or mission-driven business raising finance, we can help.
We have a deep understanding of the issues faced by those seeking to make – or raise – investments which not only provide a sustainable financial return but create positive value for society and/or the environment as well.
Most impact investing transactions call for a tailor-made approach, to honour the integrity and purpose of the organisation receiving investment. Our advice centres around this.
We don’t just advise on the law in this field, we shape policy and the most significant developments around it. We made the argument for the creation of the statutory social investment power for charities, created the Community Interest Company, worked with Government on the design of social investment tax relief (SITR), and structured key institutions such as Big Society Capital, Social Finance and Charity Bank.
As a B Corp, we’re also motivated by our values-driven commitment to positive impact. Impact investing has a key role to play in delivering on the UN Sustainable Development goals. We’re here to help organisations like yours to work towards eliminating poverty, improving health and education, reducing inequality, and building a sustainable, more prosperous future.
You might be an impact investor looking to achieve real social change. Maybe you’re an ambitious business or start-up looking to embed purpose in your business, or a charity seeking innovative ways of raising investment to further your charitable purposes.
