IDH Investment Management B.V, as fund manager of the IDH Farmfit Fund, is seeking to appoint a firm to provide risk management and associated services to the Farmfit Fund.
The Farmfit Fund is a recently closed Euro 100m blended finance, de risking fund which aims to catalysis and de risk commercial investment into small holder farmer based value chains. The Farmfit Fund is an initiative of Stichting IDH from the Netherlands and is supported by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, The Development Finance Corporation of the USA and a number of leading corporate brands, including Unilever, Rabo Bank, JDE and Mondelez. The Farmfit Fund will make predominately hard currency investments in DAC listed countries to support the improvement in the livelihoods of small holder farmers, using a number of instruments including debt, guarantees, and equity.
Given the nature of the investments of the Farmfit Fund, risk management and mitigation strategies are critical to meet the return objectives of the Fund. To this end we are seeking to appoint a risk management consultancy with experience in impact investment and blended finance with a strong focus on delivering solutions with respect to investments in emerging markets.
Proposals can be submitted in English until 28 August 2020.
