This chapter explores the emerging infrastructure supporting the social finance market. It first establishes the wider background for the subsequent discussion by discussing in detail the basic requirements for the flourishing of a social economy. Building on this, the chapter then goes on to identify and explore four key types of infrastructure that support the development of the social finance market: governmental, facilitative, intellectual, transactional. Each type of infrastructure is explored in detail and its position in the social finance ecosystem analysed. The chapter includes a range of international case examples to illustrate its analysis. Conclusions sum up the key contributions of this chapter.

Keywords:   Social Stock Exchange, social finance market, governmental infrastructure, transactional infrastructure, facilitative infrastructure
