We are pleased to have partnered with Summer Housing as part of a consortium of impact investors that have injected $48m into 60 specialist disability accommodation (SDA) apartments.
Summer Housing has an innovative approach, acquiring 10 apartments within high amenity, larger, and well-located apartment developments and modifying these to enable a high level of accessibility to tenants. An eleventh apartment is acquired and used as a hub to provide 24/7 concierge support to residents. The model supports people with very high support needs to successfully live independently as part of the community with access to education and employment opportunities and most importantly, an ordinary life.
For Purpose Investment Partners Executive Director, Chris Yoo said: "Summer Housing is a uniquely placed provider in a high growth sector, with a strong and scalable model. We believe we have found a partner in Summer Housing that aligns with our culture and values, and we are excited about the opportunity to team up with The Paul Ramsay Foundation and Conscious Investment Management to provide the required capital to catalyse growth in this space."

Our very own Michael Traill sat down with Alberto Lidji for a discussion on social investing in Australia, as part of the Do One Better Podcast.
The episode explores a range of topics including:
(1) An overview of philanthropy in Australia today.
(2) Going beyond grant-making and ensuring endowments are invested for impact.
(3) Do investment professionals genuinely value impact investing?
(4) How does a non-profit, impact investment manager actually work?
(5) How do you go about deal flow origination, and what does a deal look like?
(6) How do you go to market with an impact investment proposition?
(7) How will the impact investing market evolve in the coming years?
(8) Do most impact investment opportunities arise from private equity houses, philanthropic foundations, high net worth individuals, or elsewhere?
Former National Australia Bank boss Andrew Thorburn has re-emerged, joining a new originator and investor in deals to manage human services.
The new group, For Purpose Investment Partners, will seek to bring superannuation funding and corporate management skills into the aged care, mental health, disability, social housing and education sectors..
In this episode of The Carnegie Project, Mark Carnegie puts capitalism under the microscope looking at where it came from, when it worked, how it worked and when it hasn't. He then turns his head to the future of capitalism through the lens of impact investing; looking at what contemporary society is attempting to do to bring it back on track after a period where it ran out of control.
Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) considerations are increasingly important to be able to identify companies that are well prepared for the future. This is largely because companies that recognise the importance of adapting to changing socio-economic and environmental conditions are better able to identify strategic opportunities and meet competitive challenges.
M. H. Carnegie & Co. is proud to be the Co-Founder of For Purpose Investment Partners (FPIP), which is addressing a significant opportunity to respond to social infrastructure investment needs in partnership with the superannuation and social sectors. FPIP will originate, fund and facilitate large scale investment opportunities in Australia that provide compelling risk adjusted economic returns and meaningful social returns. This is CAPITALISM 2.0.
Join the conversation alongside Mark Carnegie, Andrew Thorburn and Michael Traill in part two of the podcast - the future of capitalism. Together they explore a pivot to thoughtful capitalism, how a profit motive and a purpose motive can go hand in hand; giving your investors a good return and society a good outcome.
Our Social Impact Fund I will open to new investors shortly, following a successful first close of $67m in December 2021.
