Why impact investing?
The UK donates £10 billion annually to charity. A nice sum, but let's face it, our problems are bigger than that.
In contrast, there is £1.6 trillion in personal liquid financial assets held by UK households and £1.5 trillion residing in defined benefit pension assets. Just 1% of those assets going to impact investing would be three times the amount given to charity.
We need to make our investments work harder for us.
How we select our opportunities
Our goal is to identify the best start-ups who can deliver measurable impact and impressive financial returns to Chorus members
Chorus researches opportunities to identify potential candidates.
Successful candidates are interviewed to analyse business and impact potential.
Promising start-ups go through initial due diligence and are presented to the Chorus selection committee.
Successful finalists go through final due diligence and if approved, ‘go-live’ on Chorus.
