This chapter highlights the opportunities as well as the risks of digital finance in mobilising capital to support sustainable development in emerging markets. It discusses opportunities for digital approaches to leverage sustainable finance by enlarging the investor base through digital capital market infrastructure and digital bonds, by increasing the supply of green and transition assets through digital data and asset aggregation, and by building a historical track record of retail customers and assets to unlock green finance. It also discusses associated risks and challenges.
