In December 2016, the Minister for Civil Society and Economic Secretary to the Treasury appointed Elizabeth Corley, vice chair of Allianz Global Investors, to chair an Advisory Group looking at how we can create a culture of social impact investment and savings in the UK.

Senior representatives from 50 firms across the financial services industry have been seeing how they can make it easier for people to invest and are exploring what the industry can do to encourage greater social impact investment.

To tackle this challenge, the Advisory Group has developed recommendations in five key areas in answer to an overarching challenge:

How can financial providers help people support the issues they care about through their savings and investment choices?

1. Improve the deal flow and ability to invest at scale

2. Strengthen competence and confidence within financial services

3. Develop better reporting for non-financial outcomes

4. Make it easier for people to invest

5. Maintain momentum and build cohesion across initiatives
