Social Investment

Playing a key role in development.

Social Investment is playing a key role in developing local economies and social and environmental issues.

We believe all companies can play a key role in accelerating the growth of this sector to understand emerging issues in society supporting regional job growth and ultimately hedge against business risks.

Our social investment fund joint venture with CAF bank is delivering social investments in Sussex, Croydon and Wales. From Ethical supermarkets, lunch clubs for older people, IT for charities, training mums back to work and helping the NHS understand family’s needs with dementia patients.

Going forward Nigel Wilson has been asked to Chair and lead the mission led business review into the UK economy.
