Social Investment

Traverse are trusted advisors, helping service providers and commissioners understand and engage with Social Investment or Social Impact Investment. These forms of financing - normally  targeting charities, social enterprises and socially minded businesses - are increasingly relevant in today's economic context as social challenges have mounted with public funding coming under growing pressure.

We are recognised experts in helping service providers and commissioners consider whether Social Investment is appropriate and adds value. As independent advisors, we bring together commissioners, service providers and social investors to design and implement new ways of funding and delivery through new models of partnership. To meet the considerable challenges posed by demographic change and spending constraints, we help create the space to experiment and innovate, and to support scaling up solutions that work.

Having established a national and international profile for our ground-breaking work in Social Impact Bonds since 2012, we have diversified, helping organisations engage with new forms of repayable Social Investment while never losing our focus on social impact

Social Impact Bonds in Japan

We've been doing work with colleagues in Japan to think through and develop Social Impact Bonds over the past 4 years. I am currently in Japan again, and we'll be sharing some of the learning from this current trip shortly (so watch this space).

In the meantime, here are two blog series that have produced based on my 2016 and 2017 visits.

2016 Series:
