IMPACT = Podcast with Faheen Allibhoy of J.P. Morgan Development Finance Institution
The J.P. Morgan Development Finance Institution (JPM DFI) was launched in January 2020 to spur investment in supporting economic development in emerging markets. The organisation aims to increase the origination and distribution of assets with development impact to meet the Sustainable Development Goals.
Faheen is a seasoned investment professional with a deep understanding of international business, emerging markets, and the development agenda. She has sector expertise in infrastructure, renewable energy, industrials, and private equity funds.
Prior to J.P. Morgan, she spent 18 years at the International Finance Corporation (IFC), the private sector arm of the World Bank, where she was responsible for setting strategy, business development, transaction execution and portfolio management. In her role, Faheen was responsible for IFC’s investments, advisory operations and client relationships in Senegal, Cape Verde, The Gambia, Guinea Bissau and Mauritania.
In this in-depth discussion with our host Andrew Murray-Watson, Faheen also explores the organisation’s partnerships with DFIs, MDBs and private sector investors, and how all can invest in a way that helps meet the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
