Investing for Good channels mainstream capital into charities, social enterprises, global NGOs and profit with purpose organisations in order to tackle social issues and increase the delivery of social good. We specialise in creating blended capital structures and bond programmes that keep the social value created by the investment at the heart of the transaction. We evaluate the impact that has been created, so that both investors and social ventures can manage their impact, monitor their contribution and expand their reach.
We are sector agnostic and structure and raise investment for social purpose organisations supporting a wide range of impact outcomes including for women's healthcare and reproductive rights, last mile entrepreneurship in Least Developed Countries (LDCs), artisanal mining, food and nutrition in sub-Saharan Africa, independent media in emerging and developed markets, and affordable artist workspaces in densely populated cities.
We have worked extensively with UK and international investors, intermediaries and social sector organisations to offer advice and the tools necessary for an effective approach to impact management and evaluation.
