Investment strategies

Investing in Greater Manchester 

We're making it easier to get funding for projects that will help grow the Greater Manchester economy.

We offer loans at commercial rates to businesses and organisations to fund schemes that will boost local employment, improve people's skills and contribute to the region's economic growth.

Our Core Investment Fund has invested more than £195m to more than 100 companies across Greater Manchester who are contracted to create over 6,500 jobs.

We can tap into European funding too, and have money to help housing developers and organisations with environmental improvements that will contribute to a low carbon Greater Manchester.

See if we can help your business contribute to a more prosperous, greener Greater Manchester.
