impact strategy

Frontclear is strategically focused on building stable and inclusive money markets by committing long-term and adapting activities for each market. As a conceptual guideline stemming from Frontclear experience to-date, our Impact Strategy can be divided into 3 evolutionary stages: 1) Opening; 2) Mid-development and 3) End-target.

The Impact Strategy reflects the complementarity and interoperability of Frontclear’s two key activities: 1) financial guarantees; and 2) capacity development (technical assistance). A nascent money market may require a 7-10 year commitment from Frontclear to support the development of stable and inclusive money markets.
