The social investment wholesaler will reveal the details of seven new investments on Thursday
Big Society Capital, the £600m social investment wholesaler, will announce seven new investments worth about £32m on Thursday.
The lender, which was formally launched in April this year, has already agreed five deals worth around £5m. Nick O’Donohoe, its chief executive, has said he hopes to commit around £50m in its first year.
A spokesman for Big Society Capital said the details of the announcements, including which organisations will receive investments, would not be available until Thursday.
It has previously announced plans for a £15m fund that will support charities to win and run payment-by-results contracts, but it has not confirmed whether this will be one of the new investments.
Big Society Capital was established with £400m of funding from dormant bank accounts and £200m of investment from four high street banks. It will invest in social finance intermediaries who support third sector organisations.
