Blended finance has been held up as the key to mobilising greater volumes of capital for sustainable and impact investing. It involves layering different types of capital - often with different return expectations and objectives - onto a single project.
But what does blended finance mean for larger infrastructure transactions? Is there a role for philanthropic capital? To what extent do DFIs comprise the market for large-scale blended finance?
Beyond the question of definitions, how can project developers most effectively structure blended finance transactions, and in what sectors and for what assets is blended finance most suitable?
