Catalytic Investment Exchange
Accelerating capital flows to economies most vulnerable to the risks and realities of climate change is core to implementing climate transition across the global economy. In emerging and frontier markets, investing in the transition has the potential to support critical climate adaptations, from the delivery of renewable energy sources and improvements in energy efficiency to the enhancement of economic infrastructure and resilience to the effects of global warning.
To help clients and investors around the world navigate the energy transition, we’re launching the Catalytic Investment Exchange (CIX). The CIX will bring together deal sponsors and direct investors and will seek to enable effective and efficient due diligence. It provides potential investors a digital due diligence review platform and provides the opportunity for investors to meet with deal sponsors at Mercer lead events around the world.
The focus of the first round of deals is on green infrastructure in Africa and the first event will be held in New York during Climate Week. If successful, we will continue to run the online platform and provide regular opportunities for in-person connection. Register your interest by emailing CIX@mercer.com by September 12 to take part in an initiative which has the potential to drive direct investment in climate projects across emerging markets.
How the initiative works
- Deal sponsors complete a questionnaire.
- Deal information is made available on the CIX platform.
