Launched in November 2020, the Scottish National Investment Bank is a development investment bank for Scotland. By building a portfolio of impactful and transformative mission-focussed investments, the Bank has an ambition to be a catalyst which builds a fairer, more sustainable, and innovative Scotland. As a mission impact investor, the Bank delivers patient (long term) investment capital that supports the delivery of the Bank’s missions, which in turn address the grand and inter-related societal challenges in Scotland, including the climate emergency, place‑based inequality and innovation challenges. Investments must meet the aims of at least one of three key missions – to support Scotland on its journey to net zero, to improve places and communities, or to harness innovation. The Scottish Government has committed to capitalise the Bank for its first ten years of operation.
