Advice on how to prepare to approach investors and increase the prospect of securing investment.
Social Impact Bonds
Social enterprises and charities are increasingly looking for new and innovative ways of generating revenue. Many third sector organisations are turning to payment-by-results contracts as a way to both generate revenue and deliver their mission.
Social Impact Bonds can help you to raise the finance required to deliver payment-by-results contracts. Investors are then repaid once the contract is completed.
We are one of the UK’s leading advisers on Social Impact Bonds and have an excellent record raising finance for clients in high social impact areas including youth unemployment, homelessness and children at the edge of care.
Since 2011 we have raised over £5 million of investment to fund £20 million of payment-by-results contracts for our clients, with a range of commissioners including DWP (Innovation Fund and Youth Engagement Fund), DCLG (Fair Chance Fund) and Greater London Authority.
Our Social Impact Bonds advisory services include:
- Tender support including financial modelling and bid writing
- Investment readiness
- SIB structuring
- Investor engagement
- Capital raising
We have been particularly innovative in the Social Impact Bonds market and have managed to bring a wide range of different types of investors into our Social Impact Bonds including:
- Institutional social investors
- Housing associations
- High net worth investors
During 2015 we completed the first two Social Impact Bonds (Aspire Gloucestershire and Ambition East Midlands) to attract Social Investment Tax Relief, which helped us bring in investment from high net worth individuals.
