Investment Partnership Facilitation

Speeches Shim

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.
  • USAID Partners Forum: PCM established the Partners Forum to bring greater private capital expertise to USAID's development priorities. The group is composed of business leaders and industry experts from both the United States and developing countries. Members of the Partners Forum meet quarterly with USAID senior leadership, sharing insights and highlighting emerging opportunities in sectors that are of interest to the private sector and align with USAID priorities. Read More (PDF 118KB)
