Annual Review 2021
In 2021, we signed a total of 12 new investments (including five follow-on investments), totalling £80 million. Since we were launched, we have now committed over £820 million to reach more than 2,000 organisations addressing a wide range of social issues across the UK. This is nearly £200 million more than the original share capital of £625 million, subscribed from dormant accounts and four major UK high street banks. This means that the initial capital is now being “recycled”, to reach more social enterprises and charities, improving more lives.Annual Review 2021 Report and Financial Statements 2021
