Capital markets and sustainable finance

Since its inception, the World Investment Report has provided analysis of direct investment and international production, focusing on the downstream segment of the investment chain (WIR20). More recently, and with a growing need to mobilize the vast sums of capital needed to meet the SDGs by 2030, the WIR has expanded its focus to the analysis of the global financial market ecosystem, or the upstream segment of the investment chain. Despite its qualitative differences from foreign direct investment (FDI), portfolio investment nevertheless offers a potential source of capital for sustainable development, and the ecosystem surrounding global capital markets is increasingly aligning itself with sustainable development outcomes, including the SDGs.
