What is the return on your investments? The value of an investment is typically looked at from a purely financial perspective with the social return often overlooked or not considered at all. Social Finance has been around for a number of years, but it is quickly gaining traction as it has the potential to solve some of society’s social and environmental challenges while generating a financial return. Investment options to date have existed for only the for-profit sector. Social finance options offer both for-profits and non-profits access to needed funds and can provide investors with the option to invest in work that improves society and generates a positive financial return.
