The VisionFund business model is successful in its impact and outreach because of its access to debt capital (through ‘Capital Markets’ in developed countries) to leverage donor capital. Today VisionFund borrows c.$250m at the Global Centre (GC) and MFI levels, roughly enabling twice the volume of child impact, due to its global Capital Markets function and key lender

To ensure its funding and scaling success, VisionFund is seeking to combine two senior positions in the area (Director of Global Funding (vacant) + Capital Markets Director (Isabelle Nowak)), and add a critical new element to the position (Innovation Finance) as well as to elevate the position in leadership profile by potentially including the position in senior management decision making bodies (CEO to determine), reporting directly to the Chief Financial Officer (CFO).
