Serena shares her views about the progress of the innovative finance industry

October 4, 2021
Our partner, Serena Guarnaschelli, was invited to exchange her views about the innovative finance industry with Sam McManus, Director of Uxolo Development and Impact Finance. She touches on key topics such as the role of public and blended finance for development purposes, the progress of climate finance and the role of the Sustainable Development Goals to align different actors.

How has the development and climate finance industry evolved over the years? How can we align the interests of private investors and public actors? What is the importance of language to create a shared framework for interaction? How can the SDGs help?

KOIS partner Serena Guarnaschelli tackles these and other questions in conversation with Sam McManus from Uxolo Development and Impact Finance. They debate about the progress of the innovative finance industry and the advantages and challenges of tapping into the private capital markets for impact purposes. Serena also explains the role that KOIS’ work has in the advancement of the sector, and she touches on her own professional journey, which evolved in parallel to key trends in the industry.
