David Ritchie and Graham Watson, Scottish National Investment Bank
The Scottish National Investment Bank is a mission-led development bank that aims to provide patient capital to build a stronger, fairer, more sustainable Scotland. The Bank is publicly owned but has been established to operate commercially, and is operationally independent from government. It will invest in businesses, projects and communities across Scotland where those investments support the delivery of its missions, and can invest either debt and equity based on the needs of individual projects or businesses. The Bank’s three missions are focussed on: supporting Scotland’s transition to net zero; building communities and promoting equality; and harnessing innovation.
Please join us to hear about the Bank’s missions, its approach to investment, and how you can work with the Bank in the future.
