We are social investment specialists, advising clients who are committed to achieving significant social change. We build each client’s individual corporate identity in an informed and strategic way – ensuring a business approach to the challenges of social development. Best-in-class social investment is based on respect for the potential and innate rights of all people, and a commitment to the expansion of opportunities. This has been our vision for the past 20 years.

We work closely with our clients and identify emerging social investment opportunities and plan investment strategies from conception to execution and evaluation. We develop strategic programmes that result in enduring social impact and establish sound monitoring and evaluation procedures.
