AMAS X BUILDING BRIDGES Webinar series on Blended Finance: An Introduction to Blended Finance

As environmental and societal challenges are becoming more complex to address, multi-stakeholder approaches ensuring the smart and efficient use of resources prove to be even more critical. Initially used in the development and impact investing fields, blended finance structures offer promising solutions and have progressively been adopted by traditional financial players including asset managers to derisk investments expected to address key sustainable development goals notably in the field of climate, gender, health, peace building or other. The principle of blended finance structures consists in leveraging concessional finance to mobilize market-rate financing in order to rebalance the risk-reward profiles of pioneering investments that are unable to proceed on strictly commercial terms.

In order to demystify how those structures work, AMAS and Building Bridges are excited to offer a Webinar Series on Blended Finance. Our speakers will strive to understand the following: What exactly is blended finance? How does it work? Why are those structures for asset managers in the Swiss market relevant? Which opportunities and challenges are asset managers facing upon implementation?
