Align17’s launching a new digital platform mobilising private wealth towards the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals


Linklaters has advised Align17, a new digital investment platform launched at the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos

Align17 matches parties seeking investment deals addressing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with co-investment opportunities brought by a vetted group of top-tier impact investors, development finance institutions and NGOs.

The platform was founded on the understanding that the world’s biggest challenges are also its biggest opportunities and the belief that private wealth is the key to unlocking the SDGs.

The Linklaters team, led by partner Mark Nuttall (picture) and managing associate Lucy Sidey, worked to create the structure of this initiative and advised on the regulatory and tax position.
