Catalytic Capital: The Key to Additional Impact

Globally, we face significant development challenges such as climate change, gender inequality, inequitable access to healthcare, and access to quality jobs. It has been well publicized that in this poly-crisis moment, the financing gap to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) has widened to USD 4 trillion a year. Innovative financial tools and collaboration are required to meet this moment.

Catalytic capital, which accepts disproportionate risk and/or concessionary returns and enables third-party investment, has the potential to help close the gaps left by government and mainstream capital and generate impact that otherwise could not be achieved.

In the second of a series of Global Webinars on Catalytic Capital from the IVPC Family of Networks, this webinar will investigate the relationship between catalytic capital and additionality, a pillar of investing for social and environmental impact.

Catalytic capital is additional by definition, as it deals with positive contributions that would not have happened if not for the investment intervention. But is catalytic capital really the key to additional impact? To find out, this webinar will share practical examples of how additionality applies in a catalytic context, highlighting various approaches and common challenges to overcome. A diverse panel of speakers from IVPC’s global network will present different ways their catalytic capital investments have led to additional impact. 

Learn from deployers of catalytic capital from Europe and Latin America about:
•    Building catalytic investment strategies that pursue additionality
•    Different approaches to achieving an impact that is additional 
•    Challenges and solutions in deploying capital catalytically – and with additionality
