About the InsuResilience Investment Fund
The InsuResilience Investment Fund, formerly known as Climate Insurance Fund, is an initiative created by KfW, the German Development Bank, on behalf of the German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).
The overall objective of the InsuResilience Investment Fund is to contribute to the adaptation to climate change by improving access to and the use of insurance in developing countries. The specific objective of the fund is to reduce the vulnerability of micro, small and medium enterprises (MSME) as well as low-income households to extreme weather events.
The InsuResilience Investment Fund has been set up as a public-private-partnership. It combines Private Debt and Private Equity investments in two separately investible Sub-Funds, open for private investors from 1 July 2017. Technical assistance and premium support facilities complete the InsuResilience Investment Fund and are separately funded by BMZ.
