Social impact finance continues to influence the social well-being and economic prosperity of millions of people and organizations worldwide. At Reed Smith, we formalized our global Social Impact Finance group in response to a growing demand from our clients – clients just like you, with the same desire to impact the societal needs of various peoples.
Our Social Impact Finance initiative focuses on increasing access to funding for organizations that deliver both economic and social returns, such as microfinance institutions, impact investment funds and other social enterprises.
We have deep experience in handling complex, cross border transactions, which puts us in a unique position to properly advise you on social impact finance. Our team is committed to finding creative solutions to help you – your charities and social enterprises – access the investment capital you need.
Our Social Impact Finance group regularly advises on a range of social impact initiatives, including the establishment of funds, innovative investment structures, social impact bonds and other capital market solutions. We can also provide you with training and research to support your work in the microfinance legal sector.
We represent organizations and individuals including investors, social entrepreneurs, financial institutions, private and institutional investors, social enterprises, charities, non-governmental organizations, and microfinance institutions, which are pioneering the development of innovative business models to address this pressing social need.
