Founded by a General Assembly resolution in 1966, the UN Capital Development Fund (UNCDF) makes public and private finance work for the poor in the world’s 46 least developed countries (LDCs). With its capital mandate and instruments, UNCDF offers financial solutions that try to mobilize public and private resources, both internationally and domestically, to reduce poverty and support local economic development.
UNCDF uses a combination of grant, reimbursable grant, loans, guarantees and technical assistance to support early stage businesses, SMEs, projects, microfinance institutions and municipal investments. UNCDF's investment activity is structured around on-balance-sheet catalytic investments and off-balance-sheet third party managed funds, for which UNCDF sources pipeline aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), primarily in LDCs. In response to the need to deploy different kind of risk tolerant capital, a blended finance impact fund was launched by Bamboo Capital Partners, as the result of a joint initiative between UNCDF and this private asset manager. The fund, called BUILD, is able to provide finance to an additional set of potential investees coming from UNCDF and the wider UN system. The BUILD Fund is complemented by a sidecar technical assistance (TA) vehicle, the BUILDER TA Facility which is specialized in providing pre or post investment business advisory services. Such advisory support is fundamental to de-risk financial transactions, both for UNCDF and potential co- or follow-on investors, and to maximize the developmental impact of the investment.
UNCDF’s LDC Investment Platform (LDCIP) serves as UNCDF’s center of excellence on innovative development finance by creating the conditions for investment viability in financially underserved areas, in the LDCs. The aim of the LDCIP is to be part of a system that (a) demonstrates to domestic and international investors that LDC markets can and do generate returns, provide opportunities for successful investment, and merit the attention of a wider range of investors and that (b) uses those demonstration effects to support policy and regulatory improvements which will help the scale up of investment activities.
The LDCIP team in New York now consists of eight people among which a team member managing the Technical Assistance activities. The LDCIP team is lead by a Director assisted by a Deputy Director. LDCIP has also established a country-based network of four investment specialists.
The TAF Analyst will be directly reporting to the TA Facility Manager of the LDCIP Unit in New York.
