Big Society Capital was launched in April 2012 as a £600 million institution and "is an independent financial institution. We were established to develop and shape a sustainable social investment market in the UK. This gives organisations tackling major social issues access to new sources of finance to help them thrive and grow. " [1]

"BSC’s purpose is to achieve its social mission rather than to maximise profits for shareholders. BSC shares are owned 60% by the Big Society Trust and 40% by the four ‘Merlin’ Banks (Barclays, HSBC, Lloyds and RBS). The BST will always hold at least 80% of the voting rights in BSC and the Merlin Banks no more than 20%." [2]
