The Good Economy is an idea whose time has come. We witness this in the fields of sustainable development, social entrepreneurship and impact investment.
The Good Economy is a humane model of capitalism focused on tackling global development challenges, including poverty and rising inequality.
The Good Economy requires businesses and investors to collaborate with government and communities to ensure that good education, good jobs, good housing and good health care are accessible to all – nobody is left out or left behind.
The Good Economy thrives on high dynamism and wide inclusion. Innovation, creativity and entrepreneurism pervade all aspects of economic life.
Our work is based on theoretical research, empirical observation and practical experience.
We are collaborative and open-minded, breaking down silos and facilitating partnerships across the private, public and social sectors.
We are good listeners; requiring a combination of emotional and rational sensibilities, enabling us to be heard and trusted in both the boardroom and local communities.
We help clients to appreciate their social purpose and become more progressive in their business and investment strategies.
We work with a broad range of investors, including specialist social investors, private equity firms, mainstream asset managers and asset owners.
We work with business leaders to increase their social value.
We work with governments and international development institutions to develop programmes and financing vehicles that have a clear development impact, particularly in low-income and fragile states.
We focus on social issues, with particular expertise in affordable housing, financial inclusion, impact investment, inclusive business, social enterprise, micro and SME development.
We work both in the UK and internationally, with first hand country experience in Sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia and The Balkans, including post-conflict countries.
