Social Impact Bond (SIB) UK v. world map

These maps and charts are accurate to the best of my knowledge as of December 2014. The images are slightly clearer if you click on them. Will try to keep them up to date, but feel free to give me a nudge if I fail to. I only count Social Impact Bonds that have been agreed by all parties and subsequently announced publicly. Happy to accept corrections!

SIB world mapReferences – more for the newer ones – the older ones are best explored through the UK Cabinet Office’s SIB Knowledge Box Case Studies which is a little out of date. Please note my bias towards government announcements over other parties’ – this reflects my personal interest rather than any objective assessment of the materials.

    Reblogged this on AP Social Finance and commented:
    If you are interested in the SIBs that have been commissioned world wide (21 to date), check out this map by Emma Tomkinson. Her blog is an in depth and insightful resource for learning about SIBs. Enjoy!

    Thank you for this very informative blog!

    I am doing my master thesis on SIBs, and I would really like to speak to you, via skype or phone, please contact me.

    About me:

    • Hi Leydi, Thank you for getting in touch – I’ve sent you a tweet – it would be a pleasure to speak to you. I’m writing a blog for research topics related to SIBs – I think there a few of you around the world who might want to connect with each other and build on each other’s research so I hope that sounds like a good idea too!

    I just wanted to provide a other link to a great work done about mapping SIB, including in developing countries. Well, it is perhaps a bit old, ’cause not including the one implemented in Netherlands and one design phase in Belgium. But it helps me a lot to understand the world map development.

    Thanks Emma for sharing your knowledge in this blog!

    • Thanks, Robin. Instiglio’s format is really useful and they are active in SIB conversations. I am, however, wary of raising expectations by publishing deals that have not been agreed by all parties – if the result of a process of developing a SIB is not a SIB, I wouldn’t want it to be assumed that some kind of failure has occurred. The process of thinking about a SIB can be beneficial for all parties and result in some other kind of contracting or financing, which may be more appropriate for the social issue at hand. I like the SIB tracker from Finance For Good in Canada – you can click on the column headings to reorder the information

    Thanks for this link, Emma. I didn’t see this link before. Researching on the topic, I appreciate however that Instiglio provides also knowledge about project in design. That it helps me to understand the further potential of this mechanism. But I really like the SIB tracker form Finance For Good, providing more detail on the cases.

  8. Hi Emma hope you are well

    UK total has finally reached 15 with launch of Manchester SIB on 5th June – see’s-first-social-impact-bond-fund-foster-placements-kids-care

    Interesting to see how UK curve has flattened off. Fair Chance Fund and Youth Engagement Fund will change that, but still not enough local commissioning!
