For Investors

Go beyond growth potential and address longstanding inequalities, tackle environmental issues, and create a more resilient region.

Create more than a financial return

Our place-based impact investment funds and projects are helping transform our region by investing in real estate, infrastructure and businesses that create lasting social, economic and environmental value in the South West of England. We have three key areas of focus: 

  • Housing
  • Community and wellbeing
  • Net Zero

Why our approach works

We combine a deep understanding of the region with extensive impact-investing experience. At scale, Place Based Impact Investment (PBII) can provide risk-adjusted market returns for large institutional investors while also addressing the needs of local communities.


We have raised and placed over £50m in funds for projects that focus on regional community priorities as well as Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) and Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).


Our place-based approach means we can connect businesses and projects that have a mutually desired outcome and impact.


We work with a range of public and private finance sources to ensure we deliver optimised long-term outcomes.

Our expertise

Our team of place-based impact investors has over 75 years of combined knowledge. Our regional market insights and network enable us to consistently guide your capital into investments of value and impact.

Where we Invest

We create funds and investments in projects that deliver both impact and financial returns. We enable you to access regional investment opportunities you might otherwise not be able to find.

Our portfolio design includes early stage, scale-up and mature business finance, depending on the need, working with business finance, clean energy, housing, physical infrastructure, digital assets, net zero, health and social gains.

We invest: Our funds

Get the investment you need to make the impact you want. Our funds invest in business sectors and assets that can show a growing social or environmental impact in our region. BBRC will review your application for investment, discuss it with you and direct you to the most appropriate fund, including sometimes with a co-investor.
