Market data

Big Society Capital exists to improve the lives of people in the UK through investment with a sustainable return.


Where is our data from?

Since 2012, we have made more than 80 investments in fund managers and social banks. As a wholesale investor with a remit to grow participation in social impact investment, we have a unique position which, through the help and collaboration of our partners, gives us a 360-degree view of the market. We can collect and share the most comprehensive, aggregated insights on the UK social investment market, and are grateful to all investors across the industry who provide their data.

Share your data

Each year we publish an annual estimate of the size of the social investment market in the UK. Twice a year we publish a list of social impact investments made into charities and social enterprises, both through our own investments and from other investors in the market. If you are a social impact investor, you can contribute by sharing your data with us to publish.
