Our Mission

Our mission is to mobilise money for social good. In other words, we aim to channel socially motivated capital at scale from mainstream investors into global NGOs, charities, social enterprises, and profit-with-purpose organisations in order to increase the delivery of social good. 

Our Story

Investing for Good was founded in 2004 on the basis of a simple insight: that the positive use of money can change the world. We are still inspired today by the power of finance to catalyse social value.

We are dedicated to growing the impact investing market and continue to find innovative solutions to address social organisations’ financing needs. We specialise in structuring blended capital funds and corporate bond programmes, which enable social organisations to benefit from unrestricted, unsecured funding at scale. We are sector agnostic and our structuring and capital raising activities spans a range of thematic areas including women's healthcare and reproductive rights, last mile entrepreneurship in Least Developed Countries (LDCs), artisanal mining, independent media and affordable workspaces for artists in densely populated cities. We brought the Arts Impact Fund to market, the first blended capital unsecured loan fund of its kind in the world that explicitly takes into account, not just financial returns, but also the artistic and social impact of the organisations it supports.

Investing for Good helped develop the market for charity bonds by arranging a Bond Programme for the leading UK disability organisations Scope and Thera. The Scope bond issue was the first to be listed on an established stock exchange by a UK operational charity.
