How Public Markets Can Unlock Emerging and Frontier Market Opportunities
At This Upcoming MOBILIST Event, Pioneering Issuers, Investors and Intermediaries Will Discuss How to Harness Different Listed Product Structures and Strategies to Deliver Returns and Development Impact
Through its search for innovative listed products and growing portfolio of investments that help address development challenges, MOBILIST has uncovered diverse public market strategies and structures. The judicious use of these financial products and business models can open up markets and deliver returns for institutional investors, improve the flow of capital to emerging and frontier economies and help meet the UN’s Global Goals and international climate commitments.
Drawing lessons and insights from MOBILIST’s research, portfolio and pipeline, this event will showcase public market strategies and structures connecting global investors to emerging and frontier economy issuers. The event brings together investors and development finance professionals with unique vantage points on public markets and issuers with varied capital raising strategies at different stages in the listing process. The event will draw on the panel’s combined experience to discuss:
- The role of public markets in investors’ emerging and frontier portfolios and strategies;
- The benefits and drawbacks of specific listed product structures and strategies employed by emerging and frontier market investors to raise capital;
- How development finance actors can partner with public market actors to exit investments and recycle capital; and
- Issuers’ first-hand experience of the listing and capital raising process.
