Vaccine Bonds offer a unique benefit to donors by putting pledged contributions to work immediately. While sovereign donors and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation support Gavi’s work through annual tranches, or installments, IFFIm's Vaccine Bonds help Gavi raise money more quickly, harnessing the power of capital markets.
Vaccine Bonds also appeal to investors looking for a socially responsible investment with a clear, unambiguous purpose. Vaccine Bonds provide investors a portfolio diversification opportunity with attractive risk adjusted returns in an award winning socially responsible investment, with clear and straight forward due-diligence, while helping to protect the lives of millions of children.
IFFIm has received numerous awards and recognition, and have earned an A+ rating from the U.K.’s Department for International Development’s (DFID) for its efficiency, economy and effectiveness, being one of the most impactful social bonds.
