Investment Mobilization Platform - a new approach to mobilizing finance for development
Financing for capital investment is critical to accomplishing development objectives – whether in health, agriculture, WASH, etc. But facilitating the flow of such financing has long been a development challenge.
The Investment Mobilization Platform offers a new approach to overcoming this challenge – harnessing the twin tools of blended capital and pay-for-results to catalyze transaction. Working on both the demand and supply side – the platform:
- Engages transaction originators (compensated on a pay-for-results basis) it develops a pipeline of transactions critical to development objectives.
- Establishes a broad and diverse network of finance providers with the ability to provide a spectrum of financial instruments (debt and equity)
- Employs blended capital as needed to boost yield for transactions which strong economic benefits but may be slightly shy on financial return.
On April 30th Marketlinks hosted a webinar with speakers Lawrence Camp of USAID and Santiago Sedaca of Palladium, who discussed the Investment Mobilization Platforms being rolled out in Kenya and Haiti.
Santiago Sedaca is a Managing Partner at Palladium, where he has worked since 2015.
