The Week's Dealflow

Deal spotlight: Blending global insurance assets for impact. The new $1.1 billion SDG Loan Fund is significant for the use of catalytic capital, in the form of a $25 million guarantee from the MacArthur Foundation and a $111 million first-loss reserve from the Dutch development bank FMO. Equally significant is whose capital is being catalyzed. “All investors in the fund are European insurance companies that are sustainability shapers in their respective countries,” said Nadia Nikolova of Allianz Global Investor, the asset management arm of the German insurance giant that was the largest provider of senior capital for the SDG fund. Insurance companies worldwide manage more than $41 trillion in assets. And, together with pension funds, they represented the largest increase in allocations to impact investing, with a compound annual growth rate of 32% between 2017 to 2022, according to the Global Impact Investing Network.
