A GLOBAL DATABASE
OF SOCIAL IMPACT BONDS
& SOCIAL FINANCE RESOURCES
The world of social impact bonds and social finance is growing exponentially with every passing year. Yet our understanding of it – what works, what doesn’t, who’s doing what, who’s financing it, and whether or not impact is being achieved – is still very much in its infancy, and is not readily accessible for anyone not deeply involved in the sector. The Global Social Impact Bond (SIB) Database is a practitioner-focused academic project to gather and connect as many social finance resources into one place as possible for the benefit of social services providers, the finance community, and those impacted by their intersection.

GLOBAL SIB DATABASE
The goal of SIB.ThisIsBenMurphy.com is to advance the sustainable growth of the social finance sector by establishing:
1.) A central, comprehensive (global) social impact bond data set;
2.) Searchable and inter-connected profiles of all entities involved, as well as related resources and tools;
3.) Connections between current and prospective social finance practitioners across the world.
The instruments to be encompassed within the SocialSectorFinance.org project include:
– Phase 1: Social Impact Bonds (SIBs), Social Benefit Bonds (SBBs), Development Impact Bonds (DIBs), and Collective Impact Bonds (CIBs).
– Phase 2: ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) Funds and Investments, Impact Investing, and Sustainable Development Goal (SDGs) Investing.
