The Orange Bond Initiative™ is the world’s first asset class by and for the Global South and the 99% that aims to mobilize the multi-trillion dollar bond market to finance gender equality. The Initiative will unlock US$10 billion to empower 100 million women as solutions to advance the UN’s 17 SDGs and build a more inclusive, climate-resilient future for all.
IIX has dedicated the last thirteen years to pioneering and building an inclusive multi-stakeholder ecosystem to show the world that women and underserved communities across the Global South are more than just a demographic and defiant leaders of change with the power to transform their families, communities, and the world by being a part of the financial markets.
