Analysis of the Scottish National Investment Bank consultation.

Executive Summary

The Scottish Government’s 2017/18 Programme for Government contained a commitment to establish a Scottish National Investment Bank (“the Bank”), to provide mission led, long term patient capital, help companies grow and support Scotland’s economic vision.

To support the work of Benny Higgins (appointed to develop an Implementation Plan for the Bank on behalf of Scottish Ministers) the Scottish Government launched a consultation on the Bank’s remit and structure on 20 October 2017. The consultation received 1,108 responses – 44 responses from organisations, a campaign response from Friends of the Earth Scotland with 753 responses, and 311 responses from individuals – before it closed on 20 November 2017. This document analyses the responses received.
