For public companies, there is a wide range of risk evaluation models which regulators, auditors, creditors and investors can use to assess risk and financial performance. In the case of a Social Impact Bond SIB , government performance payments are linked to the achievement of social outcomes. One of the key risks for an investor is that the service provider which might be a private company, an NGO or an NFP entity fails to deliver on the agreed outcomes.
In a SIB arrangement, the government cannot completely eliminate risk e. There is also potential reputational damage for the government if the SIB arrangement fails. Robust risk evaluation tools are therefore needed to evaluate the viability, capacity and quality of service providers and social enterprises more broadly.
While most distress prediction models in the literature have been applied to publicly listed companies, many can be readily adapted to private companies, NGOs and NFP entities responsible for social service delivery.
Examples of risk models include simple probability models such as logit and probit models and advanced probability models such as mixed logit model, NL and latent class models. More recently, artificial intelligence and machine learning models have been used to predict distress and bankruptcy and have ready applications to private company, NGO and NFP service providers. Service providers also need effective and transparent assurance and governance frameworks to build and maintain investor confidence in the SII market.
Charities and NFP entities are not necessarily subject to the same robust oversight and monitoring rules as listed public companies. While the governance requirements of the ACNC Act are fairly minimal, the Australian Institute of Company Directors have set out ten more detailed governance principles for directors of charities and NFP entities:.
One way for market participants involved in an SII arrangement to ensure that service providers are meeting best practices for assurance and governance standards is to develop a checklist that addresses how well they are managing assurance and governance risks. This is considered particularly important given the strong links established in the literature between poor governance practices and distress risk.
There is a range of quantitative and qualitative factors for assessing the overall risk and performance of the service provider. It is possible to integrate these factors into a scoring model or rating system to assess current SII proposals or renewals for existing projects. A framework for rating the overall viability, performance and service delivery capacity of social service providers is therefore a must for social impact investing to flourish.
