Wednesday, September 9th 2020, 10am – 12:30pm Eastern time (GMT -4):
This seminar is at full capacity.
This 2.5-hour (150 minutes) interactive seminar will cover:
- How concessional/ first-loss capital is used to mobilize additional private sector financing;
- The rationale and considerations behind structuring layered funds;
- Case studies and trend analysis on blended finance transactions with concessional/ first-loss capital; and
- Recommendations to practitioners on leveraging this catalytic instrument effectively.
This seminar will focus on transactions where public or philanthropic investors provide funds on below-market terms within a capital structure of a fund, company or project. First-loss (or junior) equity and subordinated debt provide an additional layer of protection, thereby shifting the risk-return ratio for private investors to an acceptable level, while also lowering the overall cost of capital for the fund, company or project.
This is the last seminar in our four-part series “A Closer Look at Blended Finance Instruments". You are welcome to register even if you have not attended any of the preceding seminars.
The seminar has limited space to ensure an intensive and practice-driven learning experience. We recommend that no more than two representatives from each organization attend. Registration is complimentary for members, applying the discount code you received by e-mail. Non-members can register for a fee of USD150.
