FT Investing for Good USA: Innovative Finance as a Force for Global Change

The idea that capital markets could help solve global problems such as poverty and climate change is acquiring a new urgency as government spending is constrained and the US administration starts to focus on national interests, rather than global development. For those working on social and environmental challenges, private sector financing and impact investing could therefore provide a critical part of the capital needed to develop solutions. At the same time, appetite is growing among donors and investors to use both their investment funds and their skills to address challenges ranging from climate change to lack of access to healthcare and education, while also generating a financial return.

FT Investing for Good USA will address these and other questions as we discuss how innovative finance could transform the global development landscape and offer solutions to some of the world’s toughest social and environmental challenges.
