Social Impact Bonds
Our Social Impact Bonds (SIBs) are pay-for-success projects driven by social outcomes in tandem with governments within the Foundation’s shared development goal(s). Each structured product investment allows for resolving critical problems and global challenges and represent high risk, high innovation causes that carry more performance biases and inherent risk. SIBs objectives are not guaranteed.
Glazier Social Impact Bonds Funds (GSIBFs) are bond contracts made to invest in social outcomes through project and program investments; return of funds are provided solely on the basis of social returns achieved. Our SIBs have specific, well articulated results that are qualitative and quantitative in nature to ensure diligence to milestones for organizational growth and investor returns.
Glazier’s Social Impact Bonds Funds act as a charitable social investment fund in order to align incentives around solving complex social problems that typically go overlooked in the investment and financial arenas. All SIB funded organizations have a common thread and are funded on the premise that they align with Glazier Foundation’s desire to improve human capacity building in our core Focus Areas.
As a data-driven team, our SIB contracts are performance based contracts with each social enterprise amongst all public-private partners. There is inherently more risk in our SIBs companies due to the nature of social impact achievements even if they are disclosed and outlined in advanced. Our team works closely with portfolio companies to develop best practices for social innovation and proven effectiveness.
As asset managers for socially aware causes, we push our portfolio companies to have high impact results in order to ensure high returns for our investor partners. Through our Glazier Investment Platform, we practice rigorous monitoring, evaluation, and an iterative approach to achieving outlined results.
We believe that our SIBs approach will ensure more focus on preventive, complex social interventions and innovative solutions. But more so, we are empowering businesses and entrepreneurs to tackle the socio economic problems of their time through measurable accountability, transparency, and a results-orientation that will set a new standard for social enterprises and social program modeling.
Glazier Investments are not FDIC-insured; no investment is guaranteed by a financial entity and principal investments may be lost. Investors are solely responsible for their investment with one or more of Glazier funds. Each individual should carefully review all fund prospectuses, summaries, reports, statements, and policies; use of a financial professional or asset manager is also encouraged.
Emerging Market Funds are best suited for contrarian investors that can withstand volatility and risk related to political instability, currency fluctuation, commodities price variation, international finance securities regulations, periodic or temporary states of illiquidity, and other risks related to developing markets.
