Lombard Odier is a Swiss private bank that co-sponsored a private loan to a number of European social investors and outcome funders, including governments and private investors. To ensure longer-term capital to help improve the possibility of providing physical rehabilitation services in zones of conflict,  the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) has led to a social investment programme from the private sector, the Programme for Humanitarian Impact Investment (PHII), also called the “Humanitarian Impact Bond”. The PHII is a private debt transaction in support of humanitarian activities that was launched by the ICRC, with support from Lombard Odier. The initial loan is a five-year commitment of US$ 26 million. The funds are being used by ICRC to finance the construction and operation of three physical rehabilitation centres of the ICRC in Mali, Nigeria and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
