Each potential investment must satisfy a number of conditions prior to proceeding to a detailed analysis of the investment. These conditions serve as an initial screen and ensure that all investments satisfy at a minimum, the investment objectives of the Fund. Examples of screening conditions are - social mission, governance, property management, target beneficiary and social impact.
Each potential investment is analysed in terms of financial aspects alongside social impact aspects which gathers information on the target beneficiary group and how the investment would benefit this group.
The Fund uses The Big Society Capital Outcomes matrix of human, social and environmental right and benefits as a tool to identify the extent to which the activities of the Social Property Impact fund would penetrate a beneficiaries life.
The Fund also uses New Philanthropy Capital to assessed and opine on the social impact in each proposed investment. This analysis is included within the investment committee appraisal. New Philanthropy Capital has a non-veto voting seat on the investment committee.
The credit committee must approval a proposal before an investment can proceed.
