A particularly exciting announcement for us!
We have been working with the U.S. International Development Finance Corporation (DFC) over the past year to bring a first of its kind social impact bond that targets the alleviation of credit and liquidity gaps that were exacerbated by the pandemic across South and South-East Asia.
We are proud to announce the Indo-Pacific Liquidity Facility (IPLF) in partnership with the DFC to be launched this quarter, where we will invest up to US$30 million to underserved populations in the region with the dual goals of generating strong financial returns with development impact. In particular, the IPLF will signify its commitment to advancing gender equity by investing in women through its participation in the 2X Challenge.
With GreenArc’s analytics platform, impactGINI, providing granular and transparent impact measurement for the bond transaction, we are committed to showing credibility and accountability on the social impact created through the investments.
