Lessons from the Development Impact Bond:
Two years since the inception of the world’s first Development Impact Bond, our panellists discuss the robust results delivered by this unique and innovative product, which is on track to meet, or even exceed, its ambitious three-year targets. We will hear from the investor, the UBS Optimus Foundation; from the service provider, Indian NGO Educate Girls; and the outcome payer, the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation, to learn how the programme works, what it delivers in terms of social as well as financial returns and why this could reshape the social-investing landscape.
