AidHedge works with development organisations, donors and institutional investors to maximise financial efficiency and facilitate impactful aid finance.

Official aid and development finance is continuing to grow – according to the OECD it was over US$140 billion in 2017. However, there are diverse challenges in aid finance that can prevent funding from reaching its intended recipients, such as regulations in recipient countries, currency and exchange rate risks, and high transaction costs.

AidHedge assists organisations in maximising the impact of the funds they receive from donors and investors. For instance, they help aid and development organisations to manage and optimise their budget and comply with reporting regulations. Meanwhile, they can help investors to identify and understand risks when investing in lesser-developed economies, who will be the primary recipients of aid and development funding.

AidHedge helped NGO World Vision with a project seeking to address living standards amongst youth in Lebanon, Jordan and Iraq. The involvement of multiple organisations in a number of countries meant balancing a variety of currencies as well as competing budgetary requirements, to provide financial predictability through consistent funding delivery.
