Investment Partnership Facilitation

Through investment partnership facilitation, the Office of Private Capital and Microenterprise (PCM) engages investors from across asset classes, financiers, or professional organizations to increase availability of private resources – both capital and expertise  –  that can be applied at scale toward U.S. development priorities.

Examples of PCM’s Investment Partnership Facilitation include:

  • Sustainable Development Investment Partnership: As a founding member of the Sustainable Development Investment Partnership (SDIP), PCM is supporting a global effort to scale up sustainable infrastructure investments in developing economies. The Partnership combines risk mitigation, co-investment and technical assistance to enable specific projects to gain access to private capital. Read more
  • National Association of Securities Professionals (NASP) Partnership: USAID has partnered with NASP to mobilize institutional investment for African infrastructure. The partnership builds the capacity of local investors, brings U.S. financial professionals to sub-Saharan Africa to help structure and advise on transactions, and exposes U.S. investors to investment opportunities.

  • Sarona Investment Partnership: Under an investment partnership with Sarona Asset Management, USAID is working to develop and pilot a currency risk mitigation instrument that can hedge or insure against currency fluctuations, thereby attracting more institutional investment to development priorities.
