The Scottish Community Investment Forum (SCEIF) plc was a subsidiary company of CBS, set up in 1989, specifically to lend to Scottish community businesses. Registered in Scotland, no. 119352. It was launched by its Chair, Sir Kenneth Alexander, on 26 September 1989 at an event in Glasgow. Regional launch events were held in other locations across Scotland. Members of the public, local authorities, commercial and other organisations were invited to purchase shares. It was a “closed end” fund with its shareholders due to be repaid in November 2000 or earlier. The fund raised £0.5 million to lend to community enterprises via an appraisal process. Needleworks Ltd, Glasgow, and Barra Community Co-operative were the first two loan recipients and in the 10 years of operation £340,000 of loans were granted. However, the fund was too small to be self-supporting and was wound up at the EGM on the 7 December 1999. SCEIF shareholders were given the option to transfer their shares into the larger ‘Investors in Society’ fund for which the Charities Aid Foundation had set up a Scottish office.
