We believe a great investment opportunity isn't just financial.

Our story

At Downing, we believe a great investment opportunity isn't just financial, it's a chance to invest in things that matter - our environment, our health, our society, our local communities and our economy. We were founded in 1986 and we’ve been working this way ever since.

We’re privately owned which helps us act quickly and stay nimble. 

Thousands of investors trust Downing with over £1.6 billion of their assets, invested into businesses that make a difference, including renewable energy, care homes, health clubs and children's nurseries.

We strive to provide investments that meet our clients’ needs. We are sensible and measured in our approach, always aiming to get the best return for the least risk.
