The International Climate Finance Accelerator Luxembourg strengthens its leadership team with the addition of the seasoned executive, investment professional, and ecosystem builder.
The International Climate Finance Accelerator Luxembourg (ICFA), the unique platform designed to support innovative and high impact fund managers in the set-up of their investment vehicles to fight climate change, announced that Stephan Peters has joined ICFA as Chief Executive Officer on September 6th, 2021.
In his new role, Stephan will manage and develop the accelerator program, support the fund managers cohorts, and expand its partnerships network.
Stephan brings more than 15 years of international experience from leading advisory and investment firms, deep domain knowledge of sustainable and impact finance, and a proven track record in ecosystem development.
“The ICFA is a truly exceptional initiative toward generating verifiable impact, to accelerate environmental as well as social change. I look forward to boost ICFA’s cohorts of climate fund managers and create the future leaders in climate finance,” said Stephan Peters.
“Over the past three years, we’ve supported 18 first-time or second-time climate fund managers, who are expected to raise well over 1 billion euros in assets under management. The program remains at the cutting edge of innovative climate finance and corresponds well to the needs of first-time climate fund managers,” said Lennart Duschinger, board chair of the ICFA.
“With Stephan’s impressive skillset and financial acumen, we are confident that we can continue to develop and improve the programme further and catalyse capital to flow toward countering climate change,” added Georges Gehl, board member of the ICFA.
