    Development Through Blended Finance

Investing in Impact

EFSE is structured as a public-private partnership. This blended finance model offers different capital tranches that provide multiple risk-return profiles.

Public investors and development finance institutions invest in junior and senior shares. Subordinated notes are purchased by development finance institutions and institutional private investors. These contributions provide a risk cushion for senior notes – the most protected investment instrument of the fund – which are exclusively offered to private investors.
