The objective of the report is to offer investors a menu of investment options. A range of these exist; from ‘armchair investing’ in fixed-income markets with little need for detailed understanding, to money directed at real assets where investors are tied in over time. We offer two case studies: one outlining different investment vehicles for mangrove investing and another proposing a biodiversity-linked sustainability-linked bond (SLB) for a sovereign issuer. While these are very different in terms of their investment profile and impact on creating additional financial flows, they are all part of mainstreaming nature into the investment agenda.
