This event has reached maximum capacity. We're still accepting waitlist registrants. If you're not longer able to attend, we ask that you notify us so that those on the waitlist can attend.

Social Impact Bonds (SIBs), also called pay-for-success contracts, are public-private partnerships that fund social services through performance-based agreements. Private investors receive a return of capital and premium only if social performance objectives are met.

The goal of SIBs is to enable governments to partner with service providers and tap private investments in order to expand effective social programs. The model promises to provide new sources of financing for critical social services, to improve cost-effectiveness of services by focusing on measurable outcomes, and to allow innovative models in providing services by shifting the initial risk to private investors. 

Please join us for a panel discussion focused on how this model has played out in practice. Have SIBs proven to be an effective impact investing tool? An innovative model for public-private partnerships? Have they achieved the promised results in the improvement of social services?
