We make investments that create an impact on people, generate returns for investors, and change the system.
- £735m Total amount of signed Big Society Capital investments
- £1.5bn Total amount of signed capital from other investors alongside us
- £452m Total amount of capital drawn down by fund managers and social banks from Big Society Capital
At the heart of connecting capital to the organisations improving people’s lives are the fund managers, social banks and other intermediaries. We invest through these intermediaries and support them to raise more capital, deliver more investments and create more impact.
There are four elements to constructing our portfolio so that we can create the maximum impact in a sustainable way over time. This approach enables us to maintain a strong level of commitment and generate returns that ensure our capital is available in future years.
Investing for others
We have £625 million of our own capital to invest, and to help the market continue to grow and develop, we have to bring in new sources of capital to help improve lives in the UK.
