Indicative Case Study: Innovative Finance Advisory

KOICA sought to identify ways to best leverage public resources and aid dollars to catalyze private investment in emerging economies. KPMG in South Korea developed practical guidelines for deployment of impact investment and blended finance, with the objective of improving procedures for mobilizing finance.

The KPMG team completed an analysis of KOICA’s current processes and capabilities, as well as consultations with development finance institutions, donor agencies, and impact fund managers. This work resulted in recommendations to implement an impact investment and blended finance mechanism ready-to-use guidelines tailored for planning and implementation, as well as operational documents such as term sheets, due diligence considerations, and impact assessment criteria. The result was a practical and ready-for-market impact investing strategy and blended finance tools.
