SIIG Market Information Day

Market Information Days are run to educate attendees about the social impact investment landscape and opportunities from social ventures.

Presenting organisations: 

CAF Venturesome is launching the Community Led Housing Fund which aims to create 800 affordable homes, and will build on the success of the Community Land Trust Funds I & II. 

Kraydel is presenting an opportunity to invest in its Age-Tech platform that enables the elderly to age well at home. Kraydel is a social enterprise with a mission lock to end social isolation of the elderly, improve health outcomes and digitally connect the elderly community - all through a simple remote control and their own TV.

Charity Bank is raising new investment to ensure that its regulatory capital base keeps up with its recent and planned growth in lending to UK charities and social enterprises. With an average annual growth rate of 28% over the past four years, the Bank’s loan book was £165 million at the end of May. Following on a current issuance of subordinated loan notes that will qualify as Tier II capital, the Bank is planning an offering of new shares in the Bank for 2020.

Bridges Fund Management will provide an overview of the market and opportunity for evergreen and social outcomes / social impact bond finance. Bridges Fund Management is a specialist firm dedicated exclusively to using an impact-driven investment approach and has raised £1bn of capital to date committed to impact investing through an established platform of funds. 

Diversity Forum will update attendees on their mission to drive inclusive social investment, addressing the disconnect in the socioeconomic backgrounds of social investors making decisions and the individuals who seek funding for their organisations, through the convening of sector-wide groups, commissioning research, and knowledge sharing.

Ethex will present on the latest developments in engaging and mobilising retail positive investors in crowdfunding to fight climate change, help end poverty and build stronger communities.

Market Information Days are mutually supportive with a focus on learning; newer investors learn from the questions posed by their more experienced peers, and those presenting are able to benefit from feedback on their ideas. The SIIG does not go further than providing a means for communication, any follow-up interactions or information shared relating to particular transactions is not the responsibility of the SIIG. 

All attendees must register for the event and will then receive self-certification documents and notification of the venue.
