Innovation in Housing Finance

The Chief Executive of Castle Rock Edinvar, part of the Places for People Group, was invited by the Scottish Government to attend the British-Irish Council Housing Ministerial event in Edinburgh.

The theme was innovation in housing finance and the discussion was around renewing affordable housing supply in a climate of scarce resource.

Castle Rock Edinvar has worked with the Scottish Government to maintain Scotland's leadership in financial innovation, by continuing to work creatively to produce innovative ways to deliver more for less public investment.

Alister spoke about Castle Rock Edinvar's influence in developing charitable bond supply with the Scottish Government, securing local authority pension fund investment and how to leverage existing assets effectively.

"In the ever changing economic climate it is important that housing associations and the Scottish Government continue to develop innovative practices for finance in housing, benefiting those in need and taxpayers. 

"Speaking to the Housing Ministers from across Great Britain provided a fantastic opportunity to reiterate the importance of working partnerships for the housing sector."
