Abstract:

Over the past decade, there has been increasing discussion on the role of social finance to help assist with the redistribution of capital for social purpose businesses. Concepts such as triple bottom line (environment, social, financial) and SIB (Social Impact Bonds) have become commonplace. The sector is largely known as impact investing with a growing market potential. Its three key components are: supply of capital, demand for capital and intermediaries. Governments by default are chief intermediaries. Non-profit and for-profit businesses exist across a “blended returns” spectrum that are aligned well with traditional financing - when understood. This research project addresses the emerging social finance education challenges and opportunity gaps. It reviews the history (e.g. social economy) where social finance emerged from and observed traditional market shifts to hybrid models consideration. More importantly, it also looks through a social finance education and training lens of shared-value proposition.
