Evaluation of the Scottish Investment Fund

Wednesday, November 5th, 2014

We’re delighted that our evaluation of the Scottish Investment Fund (SIF) for Social Investment Scotland has now been published.

The Scottish Investment Fund is a £31.8 million fund managed by Social Investment Scotland (SIS) since 2008 on behalf of the Scottish Government.   SIF has supported 67 investments across Scotland via a mix of grant, loan, risk capital and revolving credit, depending on the needs of the organisation. All investments have taken on some loan finance and many of the investments have been capital projects involving substantial sums of money.

This initial evaluation has proved that the SIF has been successful in meeting many of its stated aims. The investment portfolio contains some of Scotland’s most innovative examples of social enterprise which are, on the whole, ambitious for the future and able and willing to face the challenges that will lie ahead.
