In the Programme for Government 2017 to 2018, the First Minister announced plans to establish a Scottish National Investment Bank.
Businesses in Scotland often find it difficult to borrow money over a longer term (10 to 15 years), known as patient finance. This will be a key focus for the Scottish National Investment Bank.
The Bank will support ambitious companies and important infrastructure projects. By aligning its aims and objectives with Scotland’s Economic Strategy, the Bank has the potential to transform and grow Scotland’s economy.
The Bank will be operational in 2020, investing in businesses and communities across Scotland.
