Finnfund’s investment process
We strive to keep our investment process swift and flexible. Investment decision is usually taken within 3 to 4 months from first contact. The final investment decision is taken by the Finnfund Board of Director based on proposals from the Finnfund management. The Board usually meets once a month.
Finnfund expects all its investments to be profitable, environmentally and socially responsible and produce measurable development impact in their target countries.
At the start of the process, we make sure that projects meet Finnfund’s basic environmental, social and governance standards, including those of the World Bank IFC (IFC Performance standards on Environmental and Social Sustainability). Environmental and social responsibility assessments also help set the terms of funding.
For project appraisal, we need a project plan developed by the client. Read more for instructions.
Contact us already when designing the project as our experts have considerable experience on business operations in the developing markets.
At the end of 2022, Finnfund’s portfolio contained 191 investment decisions in 55 countries.
