The Government will work with leading social investment experts to take forward aspects of this strategy

Ultimately everyone will need to be part of building a dynamic social investment market

  • social ventures
  • individual citizens
  • mainstream financial institutions
  • charitable foundations
  • social venture intermediaries
  • professional bodies and business networks

Success will look like a bigger market...

...that works more efficiently

Social Venture Intermediares:

  • Big Issue Invest
  • Bridges Venture Funds 1 and 2
  • Bridges Social Entrepreneurs Fund
  • CAF Venturesome
  • Charity Bank
  • Co-operative and Community Finance
  • The Key Fund
  • London Rebuilding Society
  • Private Equity Foundation
  • Social Finance
  • The Social Investment Business
  • UnLtd

...and finally, what will cause this market to fail?


  • Imperfect information
  • Imperfect competition
  • Externalalities
  • Absence of public goods
  • Cultural and behavioural barriers
