Blended Finance

Blended Finance Funds and Facilities


The annual OECD survey on blended finance funds and facilities gathers information on the latest trends in the blended finance market. Building on the evidence base, the survey helps to define the size and shape of the blended finance market and to improve its visibility to policy makers and private sector actors. Efforts to increase data are critical to ensuring continued growth in the blended finance market.

2020 Blended Finance Funds and Facilities Survey

The 2020 OECD Funds and Facilities survey provides a comprehensive picture of the collected investment vehicles (CIV link to definition box) active in blended finance. The forthcoming paper is a quantitative and qualitative analysis of 198 surveyed funds and facilities, with questions grounded in the OECD DAC blended finance principles (link to BF principles page):

  1. How are CIVs anchored into a development rationale?
  2. How do CIVs attract private finance?
  3. How do CIVs respond to local needs through local currency?
  4. How do CIVs involve multiple stakeholders with different returns expectations?
  5. How is development impact being tracked and evaluated in CIVs?
