Social investment has come a long way since Allia began its work in February of 2009. "Today, 14 years later, the picture has changed dramatically," writes Phil Caroe onthe ClearlySo blog. It may still be a tiny market compared with the billions of pounds donated to charity or invested in other financial markets, but it's developing rapidly and, if forecasts by Boston Consulting Group are anything to go by, demand for social investment over the next few years could grow by an average of 38% per year.
The Allia team is now launching the Future for Children Bond, which allows for investors to specifically support children in care. You can find out more on the Future for Children Bond website.
