CFM is a leading blended finance fund manager dedicated to securing a sustainable future through investing across global emerging markets. CFM has a long-term vision to structure cutting edge financing facilities around thematic areas of climate change mitigation and adaptation, including renewable energy, water, sanitation and oceans, sustainable land use and sustainable cities. Established in 2015, CFM is a joint venture between the Dutch development bank FMO and Sanlam InfraWorks – part of the Sanlam Group of South Africa. To date CFM has launched two facilities, the renewable energy focused Climate Investor One (CI1), and the Water, Sanitation and Oceans focused Climate Investor Two (CI2).
Climate Investor Two (CI2) is a financing facility mandated to invest in water, sanitation and ocean infrastructure projects in emerging economies. CI2 will follow the proven ‘whole-of-life’ financing methodology of Climate Investor One (CI1), which has been acclaimed for its approach to risk mitigation and private sector capital mobilization. CI2 enjoys cornerstone support from by the Dutch Fund for Climate and Development.

Through its NWP membership, CFM has gained access to a great network of knowledge and expertise in the water sector, which has proven an invaluable resource during the establishment of CI2
