GCPF raises additional USD 15m in Junior Shares

Zurich - In late December 2022 GCPF, managed by responsAbility, received a USD 15m investment in junior shares from BMWK - The German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action, to finance projects that reduce carbon emissions in developing economies. With this investment, BMWK increased its commitment to roughly USD 95m.

Junior shares represent the ‘first loss tranche’ of GCPF; any losses experienced by the fund are deducted from the first loss tranche, effectively reducing the risk of investment for other investors.
