Our client, the Scottish National Investment Bank was launched late 2020 as a new development investment bank for Scotland with a vision to catalyse change by investing in a fairer, sustainable and ambitious Scotland. The Bank will seek to invest in businesses and projects that will support a growing Scottish economy with a focus on stimulating positive economic and societal change and innovation.

The Bank will be a mission-orientated patient capital investor, with long-term missions set for it by the Scottish Parliament. The primary mission, already identified, will be investing in supporting Scotland's transition to net-zero. A further two missions are expected to focus on investing in places and regeneration to reduce inequality; and, investing in innovation for the long-term benefit of the Scottish economy.

The Bank will be underpinned by £2bn of capital from the Scottish Government, over 10 years. As a development investment bank, the Bank will seek to enhance and expand the financial investment options available to business and projects across Scotland. In addition to the capital the Bank has committed from the Scottish Government, the Bank will be seeking to crowd-in investment from other lenders and institutional investors into the Scottish economy.
