The London Homelessness social impact bond, commissioned by the GLA with St Mungo‘s as a service provider completed today. We are delighted to have led a panel of investors into this deal. We believe that we have enabled the first ever individual investors (retail investors) to take part in a social impact bond investment; previous social impact bonds have received funding exclusively from organisations and high net worth investors.
