What Investors Need to Know to Embrace Catalytic Capital

In this essay in Stanford Social Innovation Review, Harvey Koh, Managing Director at FSG describes what is needed to expand the use of catalytic capital, particularly by Development Finance Institutions (DFIs) and private foundations. He explores the challenges these two different types of investors face in using catalytic capital along with other ecosystem needs, concluding that three key areas will help investors of different types mobilize more catalytic capital for greater impact:
  • Clarifying the why, what, and how of catalytic capital at a more granular level for different investor types
  • Research on both supply-side providers and demand-side opportunities
  • Improving the regulatory frameworks that can influence the flows of impact capital
