Bringing impact to investment

View Our Services

Our Vision

Our vision is of a world where the financial system is a powerful force for good and the impacts of businesses are considered in all investment decisions.

It is our mission to bring impact as the third dimension into investing, where all investors consider risk, return and impact – creating an environment for entrepreneurs and businesses that make a difference to thrive.

Our Values

We seek to be a different kind of organisation – one that constantly challenges the status quo, finding ways to innovate and grow the market.

ClearlySo is an intermediary in the truest sense of the word; we connect and bring together diverse parties to create new models and ways of doing business. Our team of experts are committed to client service and to our vision of the financial system as a force for good.

Embodying the model that we advocate, we firmly believe that businesses can be both high-return and high-impact.

What we do

We work exclusively with high-impact businesses, charities and funds. We support their capital raising activity through financial advisory work, and introduce them to institutional and individual investors who share their objectives and values.

We also deliver contracts for The Big Lottery Fund via The Big Venture Challenge and The Big Potential Fund and the Cabinet Office through the Childcare Investment Readiness Fund and the Investment and Contract Readiness Fund.
