Bertrand Beghin and Dominic Llewellyn founded Numbers for Good in 2012 after a mutual friend realised they shared the same vision to use finance as a tool that empowers social enterprises, charities and other organisations striving to improve the world.
Previously Bertrand spent 15 years on the frontline of corporate finance while Dominic had worked in policy, charity and political spheres. Recognising that their contrasting backgrounds gave them the perfect set of experiences and skills to connect the social sector to the financial markets they began working together, and Numbers for Good was born.
Since then Numbers for Good has become one of the leading social investment organisations in the UK. Our team comprises of financial analysts, business consultants, policy makers and social enterprise and charity specialists. This mix of skills and experience make us ideally positioned to help organisations understand how they can use social investment.Our Team Members
