FCA has issued a call for input on how regulation is working in relation to the social investments market. Social investments aim to provide a wider social benefit than an investment purely for financial benefit. They are not donations in that social investors generally either expect to get back their initial investment or expect the organisation to use the investment for its work and provide a return to investors where it can. This consultation seeks views on potential regulatory barriers to social investment. It explains the different structures that a UK social enterprise can have, how FCA rules may apply and asks for views about specific rules and policies which may be hindering investment for social purposes. Consultation closes on 14 March 2016. (Source: FCA Calls for Input on Social Investments)
