Abstract: Abstract Social Impact Bonds (SIBs) are an innovative solution to convey private resources into welfare expenses. The financial scheme has created great interest in the last decade but it still presents numerous downfalls, which impede the growth of a strong market. This chapter aims at introducing some modifications to the scheme to redistribute both exposure and benefits between investors and the other parties involved. The chapter also encourages the choice of Social Providers among corporations capable of combining the creation of social impact with the production of revenue. Thanks to these modifications, SIBs could become an effective tool to raise capital for innovative enterprises and to widen the market of pay-for-success products.
