This report describes the findings from the latest research collaboration between Ecorys UK and the Policy Innovation Research Unit examining Social Impact Bonds (SIBs). The research found four factors that seem to determine whether a SIB is launched, creating the LOUD model: Collective Leadership, clear Outcomes, shared Understanding and Data. In this report, we explain each of these four factors, and provide examples where they were critical in determining whether a SIB was launched or not.
