Investments in 53 developing countries

In 2020, Finnfund made 31 investments decision with a total worth of 206 million euros.

New investment decisions target mainly (98%) countries of low or lower-middle income, in which the need for sustainable development investments is greatest.

In 2020, Africa continued to be Finnfund’s primary investment destination with 56% of volume and 58% of decisions. Asia comes in second with a third of
investments.

The majority of Finnfund investment were made directly in companies operating in developing countries. 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.
