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.

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. 

I am a charity or social enterprise

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.
