You're invited on June 7th for a virtual presentation of Convergence's recent report, Evaluating the Impact of Blended Finance: Convergence's Case Study Portfolio Revisited.
Since 2015, Convergence has written 28 case studies on blended finance transactions, detailing the journey of blended finance practitioners when structuring, fundraising, and launching blended finance deals.
Evaluating the Impact of Blended explores the ex-post financial and impact performance of blended finance deals, by revisiting our case study portfolio to document achieved returns, target beneficiaries, and reporting practices, amongst other key issues.
The presentation will include a panel discussion with past case study sponsors where they will share their perspectives on what they have achieved through blended finance as well as their thoughts on the trajectory of the market going forward.
