CDC Group is promoting four of its executives to senior roles within the British development finance institution reflecting a shift in emphasis as it embarks on its latest five-year strategy. Among other things, the institution’s focus between 2022 and 2026 includes a commitment to invest at least 30% of its new capital allocation in climate finance opportunities and make backing clean infrastructure projects a priority.

All four executives have been working in senior roles in the respective departments that they now lead. Amal-Lee Amin, who joined CDC as a Director of Climate Strategy in February 2020 becomes a Managing Director and Head of the institution’s Climate initiatives. Since joining the DFI, she has led cross-firm initiatives to align investment strategies with the goals of the Paris agreement and has helped CDC forge a leadership position in climate finance within the development finance community, especially in the area of catalyzing private investment for climate adaptation and resilience.
