Nick is responsible for our data and data across the social investment market, and our deal-level data releases. Having qualified as a Chartered Accountant at PricewaterhouseCoopers, Nick established a debt counselling centre on a London council estate while also being the Financial Controller for a profit-with-purpose jewellery company. He then set up a social enterprise in Zimbabwe and worked for Resurgo, a social enterprise that helps unemployed young people become more employable. Nick is on the advisory board of street food social enterprise Well Kneaded, which employs young people.
In 2016, we produced our first comprehensive estimate of the size and composition of social investment in the UK. Two years on, we’ve updated the central data in this report for the end of 2017 and highlight some emerging trends.
