Nudging the Investment Ecosystem by Incentivizing Impact
Author(s): S. Bauer, D. Hollmann


“This discussion paper builds on the results of the Conference Financing Global Development – Leveraging Impact Investing for the SDGs hosted by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) in Berlin on 21st November 2017.

This paper shares the findings of the session. It aims to foster a conversation around impact measurement and management 2.0 and actively integrating impact incentivization in investment processes. The discussion focussed on how to incentivize the impact investing chain – those who provide capital, those who manage it, and those who receive it – to channel their efforts towards high impact SGBs and to provide adequate support for scaling impact.”
