Investments in 45 developing countries

In 2018, Finnfund made 26 investments decision with a total worth of 154 million euros.

Investment decisions target project with higher impact, as stated in Finnfund’s strategy. As many as 93% of new investment decisions made in 2018 dealt with projects with “good” or “excellent” impact, based on our ex ante assessment.

New investment decisions target almost solely (89%) countries of low or lower-middle income, in which the need for sustainable development investments is greatest.

Most (20) of our new investments decided in 2018 were in Africa. Africa was the most important region also in euro terms, with 67% of financing.

The majority of Finnfund investment were made directly in companies operating in developing coutries. Direct investments mean long-term investment loans, equity or mezzanine financing.

Besides direct investment, we can make indirect investments through funds. We also finance banks and financial institutions. Finnfund financing is always market based and depends on the risks of the project.
