Peter Holbrook CBE, Chief Executive of Social Enterprise UK said:

“The need to mobilise trillions of capital in the UK and around the world for social good has never been more pressing. The new Institute for Impact Investing comes at the right time and has the potential to accelerate the deployment of that capital to create a more sustainable and inclusive economy.”

“Whilst the remit of the Institute is understandably broad, we hope that it retains as a key focus providing appropriate finance to social enterprises. For too long the investment conversation has been divorced from the needs of our members and the requirement for functioning market opportunities to fuel their growth. We look forward to working closely with the Institute to ensure those conversations are brought together and bring fresh impetus to growing the scale of social enterprise.”
