Big Society Bank

The Bank will have a clear social mission and four operating principles:

  • Independence
  • Acting as a wholesaler
  • transparency
  • self-sufficiency

The Bank will be both a wholesale investor and a champion of the market

The Bank could invest in funds for front line social ventures, for intermediaries and for development of new market vehicles and infrastructure.


The Bank could invest as a co-investor, underwriter or guarantor.

The Bank will be a champion for the social investment market

The success of the Bank will be judged by its impact

Work to set up the Bank is on track, with some of its functions in place from April 2011 (Useful article HERE)
