Sometimes things happen very quickly at the Crop Trust. In an effort to diversify the funding mechanisms of the Crop Trust we have been working with Deutsche Bank on a new private-public initiative.
The Crop Trust’s Marie Haga presented a side event entitled Private Funding for Food Security: The Investment Sharing Facility. The Investment Sharing Facility is an innovative a social impact investment fund we have put together with Deutsche Bank.
Institutions and households invest into an equity mutual fund complying with environmental, social and governance criteria. The Crop Trust receives part of the returns to secure global crop diversity for current and future generations.
