Focus on Blended Finance — Part 1

In the first part of this 2-part episode, we explore how the SDG Loan Fund — one of the largest blended finance deals to date — came about, its main challenges, and how it successfully aligned the needs and risks of all parties involved to mobilise additional capital towards sustainable development in emerging markets. Featuring Debra Schwartz, Managing Director of Impact Investments at MacArthur Foundation, and Nadia Nikolova, Lead Portfolio Manager for Allianz Global Investors’ Impact and Development Credit.  

This episode is hosted by Clara Maspons and Gianluca Gaggiotti, respectively Impact Europe’s Knowledge Associate and Senior Knowledge Manager; the show is produced by Alon Shapiro and Nathan Ritholz.
