We are
place makers

We invest in real estate, infrastructure and businesses to deliver attractive returns for investors and strong social, economic and environmental outcomes for local communities.

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.
