Social stock exchanges

Social stock exchanges to measure the performance of social businesses. This would enable investors to trade shares and invest in social purpose companies and enable those companies to access new forms of finance. Currently a number of social enterprises trade shares through matched bargains between registered buyers and registered sellers on the basis of a price recommended by the Board of Directors. The Rockefeller Foundation has recently announced a study to investigate the viability of a social stock exchange for social enterprises in the UK.
