Implementation Taskforce response to FCA Patient Capital consultations

We welcome these consultations, which focus attention on regulatory and practical issues that may impede the provision of patient capital and follow on from the excellent work of the Law Commission in their June 2017 report on Pension Funds and Social Investment. In particular, we are pleased to see proposed solutions and an invitation for a broader discussion that will be beneficial to consumers by facilitating investment by unit-linked insurance and authorised funds in the full range of investments – including social impact investments – matching the needs of retail consumers more effectively.
