What We Do

TSIC works with ambitious organisations and changemakers. Those that want to break silos, embrace the unknown and are keen to create systemic change in their markets. We work in a collaborative and dynamic way, helping our clients to think differently, and perform to their greatest potential. In order to create the deepest social investment, we enable our clients to hear the voices and consider the opinions of those that can shape the impact and investment that they make.
Our business is focused on 3 pillars:

Words from our clients…

The work TSIC did was invaluable. It gave Mada an independent profitability analysis as well as areas of focus. It provided the foundation upon which an informed decision could be made. Our experience with TSIC was very positive as I believe the work TSIC undertook was of high-quality and met Mada’s expectations. I will certainly recommend TSIC to others.

There are few organisations that have such a deep understanding of social impact measurement. Through our Good Kitchen programme, Bonnie and her team engagingly and meticulously guided five social businesses through how to measure the difference they were making and why it was important. With a heap of relevant case studies, well-prepared workshops and follow-on activities, it’s fair to say that it fundamentally changed how we thought about and conducted social impact measurement.

Through taking part in The Charities Intrapreneurship Programme, we have gained confidence around generating and putting forward ideas, an understanding of the wider market place, and an understanding of how to go about feasibility studies and client research. We also gained lots of great feedback and ideas.

Insights and Collaboration

We deliver high quality, in-depth research to mobilise action-orientated approaches, insights and collaboration, to drive social change. We deliver through first-hand experiences, professional and academic expertise.

Our reports draw on quantitative and qualitative methodologies to help organisations shape their understanding of complex issues, communicate findings to their stakeholders, and engage with policy debates.

Examples of insights report:

  • The City of London Corporation to scope potential new sources of capital for the UK social investment market. Read more here.

Examples of collaboration:

We are actively working to improve diversity and inclusion among impact investors. As a firm that very much prides ourselves on embracing diversity in terms of age, race, ethnicity, class, religion, gender, sexuality or disability, we work to ensure that these systems of discrimination are not perpetuated among capital and wealth holders. The two initiatives we are currently convening are:

(1) Diversity Forum

Diversity Forum gathers over 50 social investment firms and 100 individuals across the social investment sector in the UK, to drive inclusive social investment – through the convening of Diversity Working Group, Diversity Champions, commissioning of research and knowledge sharing.

(2) Women in Social Finance

A network of 120 senior female professionals working in social finance, dedicated to increasing visibility of female leadership, providing peer support and training for career advancement, and influencing the agenda on gender lens investing.
