IMPACT INVESTING IN EMERGING MARKETS [VIRTUAL] (in partnership with The Blended Capital Group)

Scaling up impact investing in emerging markets

This virtual event occurs in Geneva Time (CET, GMT+2). Abu Dhabi, UAE time is 2:00 hours ahead of Geneva, Switzerland.

This event will be a dynamic, moderated roundtable of policymakers, investors and thought leaders seeking to scale up impact and sustainability-aligned investment into emerging and frontier markets. It will feature examples of break-through impact investing projects, including innovative business models where private and public capital is fusing to drive social purpose drawn from, inter alia, Brazil, Kenya, India, Senegal and South Africa.

Issues to be addressed:

  • Getting the blend right: mobilizing blended finance towards businesses and projects that are replicable, scalable, and can achieve the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) objectives of localization based on high-quality governance and collaboration along the whole investment chain. Successful examples of SDG 17 “Partnership” will be presented.
  • Systemizing impact: escaping the “project by project” mentality to forge new pathways that systemize and accelerate the scaling up of impactful business models. Align investable impact models and businesses with the SDGs and make them fit for purpose for larger investment investors including pension funds, family offices and sovereign wealth funds.
  • Reinventing private-public collaboration: How can we bring multilateral, developmental and broader ODI public finance together with private families, institutional asset owners and sovereign entities to deliver in the final decade on the promise of the SDGs?
