The establishment of a Scottish National Investment Bank was a key measure announced in the Programme for Government 17-18 on 5 September 2017, with Benny Higgins, CEO of Tesco Bank, appointed by the First Minister to lead work on an Implementation Plan.

Why We Are Consulting

As a critical new investment in the development of Scotland’s economy, the Scottish National Investment Bank will work for the benefit of the people of Scotland. As such we are keen to ensure that the people of Scotland are given the opportunity to express their opinions on the final configuration of the Bank.

The Programme for Government 2017/18 outlined Scottish Government plans to  establish a Scottish National Investment Bank. This consultation will help to shape the Parliamentary Bill being introduced in 2019.
