Catalytic Capital for BIPOC Wealth Creation

NGIN is pleased to share insights on inclusive capital, with findings that (1) racialized definitions of risk continue to hold back capital (2) the 2020 corporate financial commitments can be viewed as market corrections rather than catalytic capital investments (3) there is evidence of catalytic capital investments which advance BIPOC wealth and can be scaled.
