From Triple Point
Something happens when people come together. From the connections we make spring ideas. Fresh solutions to big problems, from how to grow our crops and heat our homes, to how to support businesses and drive the economy. And from solutions like these flow opportunities to create value.
We call it the Triple Point. It’s the place where people, purpose, and profit meet. Since 2004, we’ve been targeting this Triple Point in areas like infrastructure, energy efficiency and social housing, unlocking investment opportunities that make a difference.
We manage over £1.5bn of private, institutional and public capital across four distinct investment strategies. Each of these strategies helps to solve a problem society faces, and each one creates opportunities for investors. Our investments transform public services, get businesses off the ground, and even kickstart whole markets.
Big problems create strong demand.
Strong demand drives good investments.
Good investments solve big problems.
It means that investors never have to choose between financial returns and social impact. You achieve one by achieving the other.

mallowstreet University Digital Roundtable: Addressing the Social Housing Crisis in the UK
As a result of many years of under investment, the UK is in the midst of a chronic housing crisis. Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, there were over 1 million people registered on social housing waiting lists across the UK, many of whom have acute care and support needs. The extent of the shortage is such that it cannot be fixed by the public sector alone and institutional investment is urgently needed to provide capital to build homes for some of the most vulnerable adults and children within our society.
Please join Jennifer Ockwell, Max Shenkman and Ben Beaton from Triple Point Investment Management for a discussion around how pension fund assets can achieve a 4% net yield at the same time as delivering considerable positive societal impact.
This morning session is accredited for CPD points by the Pensions Management Institute (PMI) and is exclusively for pension fund decision makers and their advisers.
