OpenTalks - Private Debt

February 2020

OpenTalks is a periodical publication by OpenFunds, in which we interview investment managers of funds that we believe to be somehow unique. The idea is to share with our existing and future clients the challenges and opportunities these managers see in their field and beyond.


Topic of this edition is Private Debt and Climate Change: experience from the UK agri-food sector.


Are financing the agri-food chain and climate change linked to each other?

How can financing the players in the agrifood have an overall positive climate effect and what role does a finance arranger play in this process? This interview gives an insight on how financing a strategically important sector like agriculture has changed in the last decade.
