We are place makers

We invest in place making businesses and projects who are reimagining our region and beyond.

Purposeful businesses can create the solutions we need for the future we want. When they join forces across a region, we call them place makers. As a place-based investor, we channel the flow of capital into these problem-solving businesses – ensuring money gets to where it’s needed to create a flourishing and diverse regional economy.

Portfolio highlights

We’ve raised and placed over £50m for place making businesses and projects in our region, funding solutions that generate long-term social, environmental, and financial value.

Read our 2022 impact report

In a year when conversations around addressing environmental and social challenges – including the role of the finance sector – were front of mind for many, it’s my great pleasure to introduce our 2022 Impact Report.

A better future is taking root

We’re a different kind of investor. We focus on how you’re improving the local area, rather than just your size, stage, or sector. That means we work across all sectors, not just one or two. We draw on our combined 75 years of knowledge to invest in your vision and then help it grow to provide the solutions our region needs. 

Investment can get your vision off the ground on your terms. We’ll design a loan that works for you and helps you make a difference for people and planet. We’ll connect you with local networks so you can find new supporters and partners.

Fund your impact with early-stage, second or later-stage capital through an equity or loan that keeps your vision front and centre as you scale. Our local market insights will also help you find new partners, customers and ways of working.

You want to invest in a better world. So we’ll place your capital in funds and projects that deliver on ESG and SDG commitments. Our place-based approach is creating a healthy local economy where your investment can grow.
