Increasing investment in Community Development Finance Institutions (CDFIs)
The UK Community Development Finance Institution (CDFI) sector currently doesn’t have a mechanism to aggregate data that would give investors a clearer picture of key metrics (e.g. loan default rates, data on declines, and social value calculations) across the sector. A solution that aggregates CDFI data will facilitate an improved due diligence process and enable investors to make more informed decisions about investing into the sector.
We are looking for a research partner to help us to:
- Understand the best way the field can collect data about itself
- Consider where and how this data should be stored
- Decide how this data should be governed
The project will kick off in July / August 2023 with a final report on the proposed solution expected by February 2024.
We are accepting proposals until midday 12pm, Wednesday 12th July 2023. Please see below for more details.
