Event Summary

Best to Invest?, which has been generously funded by the Golden Bottle Trust, is a practical guide to social investment which aims to help funders to decide whether social investment is suitable for them in principle, and if so, how to go about it. It provides a checklist of issues to think about before making a social investment, particularly addressing the topic of whether the potential investment will create the same kind of social impact as a grant. It also addresses some of the risks and legal aspects that funders need to take into consideration before making a social investment.

The report has been written for trusts and foundations as well as individual investors interested in social investment and includes case studies of different types of investors who have engaged in a variety of ways in this field.

The event will be chaired by Alexander Hoare, C. Hoare & Co. with a lively Q&A session after presentations from the report authors:

Sarah Hedley and Abigail Rotheroe, NPC; and Luke Fletcher, Bates Wells Braithwaite.
