Welcome to the INDIGO Social Investment / Fund Manager Prototypes page. This work is ongoing as part of the International Network for Data on Impact and Government Outcomes (INDIGO). Here we are exploring ways to describe and visualise the role of a social investor or fund manager in impact bonds. We hope to include more complete visualizations in a future release of our Impact Bond Dataset.

These prototypes were first developed in collaboration with Big Issue Invest (BII) as part of an INDIGO Technical and Learning Project. We thank BII for co-funding the development of the open-source software behind these prototypes. We also thank BII for sharing some of their data. These prototypes were also improved through the INDIGO Hack and Learn 2020

These prototype data visualisations were developed to allow anyone to view and compare different projects based on data in the spreadsheets available under each project profile and in the downloadable CSV file. (Access the project profiles or download the CSV file below).  The sample data used in these visualisations relate to four impact bonds in which BII is an investor:  Cornwall Frequent Attenders, Street Impact Brighton, Pyramid Project and Skill Mill. A Technical and Learning Report on our learnings was published on January 2021.  

We invite social investors and fund managers to share their data and feedback on the relevant data definitions so we can advance this work Please provide feedback on the definitions using the INDIGO Data Definitions Improvement Tool.  Please email indigo@bsg.ox.ac.uk to talk about sharing your data.

Data Definitions: The data definitions associated with this dataset are detailed in the INDIGO Data Dictionary 2020 V2.01.

Open Source Code: The open-source code for this work is on GitHub: https://github.com/INDIGO-Initiative

Thank you in advance for working with us towards better data for better social outcomes!
