BwB, an innovator in finance, is a social enterprise powered by former investment bankers to assist high impact projects that benefit the environment and social good. BwB works with governments, institutions, cities and foundations to provide advisory and research services to mobilise private capital.
Similar to the ethos of Medicins Sans Frontieres which provides medical aid where it is needed most, BwB aims to provide financial structuring where it is needed most. BwB pursues transactions that may not be pursued by the financial sector because of any combination of the following reasons: jurisdiction, counterparties, complexity, retention of intellectual capital, liquidity, fees and high time investment. Prior to beginning BwB, the team researched the topic for 18 months and found this to be a missing service that projects and their sponsors, were asking for.
