ABOUT US

Instiglio is an international development consultancy that empowers social and public leaders to improve the impact of social programs in developing countries by leveraging the power of Results-Based Financing (RBF). We have worked on topics as diverse as girls’ education in India, workforce development in Morocco, community health in Uganda, and poverty Graduation in Kenya and Uganda. At the center of our efforts is the pioneering of RBF instruments such as Impact Bonds and Performance-Based Contracts. Instiglio was the first to bring Impact Bonds to developing countries and has designed Performance-Based Transfers that exceed USD 300 million. We hold ourselves to the same rigorous, evidence-based standards as the social programs that we support. We leverage our impact by continuously innovating on the design of our instruments and openly sharing our hard-won insights with the international development community. By tying funding to results, we believe that we can unlock the potential of social programs and help millions of people escape poverty.

Over the past five years, we have structured over 25 RBF transactions in 12 African, Latin American, and South Asian countries. Instiglio is a trusted advisor of many developing country governments, multilateral organizations such as the World Bank, bilateral organizations such as DFID, impact investors, and social enterprises.

We are headquartered in Bogotá, Colombia, have offices in Kenya, Peru, the US, and have plans to open an office in Morocco. Please visit the Instiglio website for more information about us.
