Having spent our careers in the world of pensions, investment, sustainability and the medical and caring professions, we know that providing and financing good, long-term care is a problem that is not currently getting the required attention, especially in terms of sustainable investment into solutions. 

We started the Silver Linings Competition to get new ideas in front of investors. 

Sign up for the competition’s final event on February 10 from 2.30 – 4.30 (GMT) here.
