Mobilizing Institutional Capital with Blended Finance

07 February 2018 - Online

Convergence is offering an exclusive webinar to Investment Network members to unpack findings and key takeaways of our new report ‘Who is the Private Sector? Key Considerations for Mobilizing Institutional Capital through Blended Finance’.

The report analyzes the unique investment preferences and regulatory conditions of different institutional investor segments and identifies the likelihood of each segment to participate in blended finance. While institutional investors are often mistakenly treated as homogenous, they represent a diverse group of financial investors, operating with different mandates, constraints, and risk-adjusted return preferences. For development practitioners and Global Goal advocates, there is great value in better understanding the unique investment preferences and regulatory conditions of different institutional investor segments.

The webinar will identify five key considerations for engaging institutional investors in blended finance and recommend next steps for improved alignment between development financiers and institutional investors. An expert panel featuring Business & Sustainable Development Commission, Credit Suisse, and Tideline will provide commentary on the report’s findings and implications.
