Some social intervention models that use property or capital-intensive assets require large amounts of capital. Using high-volume intermediaries and public markets, we aim to get institutional investors to fund these capital-intensive interventions.

How social investment can be used 

To buy property to deliver services

Through a charity bond

Our goals for 2017

  • Greater use of social investment in capital-intensive sectors and products
  • More institutional capital attracted to social investment
