About us

Part of Downing LLP

Downing is a sustainable investment manager established in London in 1986. We currently manage c.£1.9 billion of assets under a broad range of investment mandates across our funds, investment trusts and tax-efficient products. As a certified B Corporation we are focused on creating a sustainable future and our key investment areas are renewable energy, infrastructure, property and healthcare.

The bond platform has successfully raised over £200 million, helping to support businesses in a variety of different sectors.

Downing Bonds

The Downing Bond platform launched in 2016 as an alternative way for businesses to raise finance whilst providing retail investors with access to investment opportunities that typically require a higher entry level of investment.

These are simply corporate bonds not listed on a stock exchange. They aren't listed because when companies want to raise smaller amounts of money (usually under £5m) for a shorter term (typically 1-3 years, though a few of our bonds have been longer), the costs and the time it takes to list makes it prohibitive.
