Are professional advisors to (U) HNWI prepared for the various forms of social impact investing? What more can be done to harness the investment opportunities available? How can this
help your clients to live their values and achieve their ambitions?
The Community Investment Tax Relief (CITR) is a tax incentive that encourages investment in under-served communities by giving tax relief to corporate and individual investors who invest in accredited CDFIs. In turn, CDFIs make loans to enterprises that operate within or for disadvantaged communities. Over the past five years the UK’s CDFIs have lent over £1 billion to almost 40,000 borrowers to help create, sustain and grow enterprise in the UK. Like Social Investment Tax Relief (SITR), CITR could be extremely attractive for investors and advisors, and represent a new tool in enabling the sector to raise finance to correct the market failure in SME and social enterprise access to finance.

About Responsible Finance 

Responsible Finance is the UK trade association for Community Development Finance Institutions (CDFIs). Our members are not-for-profit lending organisations with a social purpose. They make loans to viable Small and Medium Sized businesses (SMEs) and social enterprises in under-invested areas, who cannot access finance from mainstream lenders like banks. In doing so they have tangible social impact by addressing the market failure in access to finance and building thriving communities across the UK.
