Data Model for the UN Global Compact Platforms for 2017   
We have included the Wikipedia definition of Financial Instruments.
Information for these Data Models has been taken from this UNGC document describing the UN Global Compact 2017 Toolbox.
We were particularly interested in this information on the the Financial Innovation Platform and these words
"... this platform will identify innovative financial instruments that have the potential to direct private finance
towards critical sustainability solutions.
The Platform will develop guidance on impact investment strategies that support sustainable development, map current
and emerging financial instruments, and provide a laboratory for the development of innovative instruments."
Our first interest is the Platform for Financial Innovation for the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals).
The UNGC document states "...this platform will identify innovative financial instruments that have the potential to direct private
finance towards critical sustainability solutions.
Development,map current and emerging financial financial instruments, and provide a laboratory
for the development of innovative instruments."

Steps in defining the Platform :- "Financial Innovation for the SDGs."
Step 1. Define the 'Things of Interest' (Entities)

Financial instruments, investment strategies, innovative instruments,
Participants (LEAD companies, Local Networks, UN agencies, other agencies
UN Partners), sustainability solutions.
Step 2. Create the Conceptual Data Model for Events and Financial Instruments

Step 3. Create the Logical Data Mart for Financial Instruments
