Investments in 52 developing countries

In 2019, Finnfund made 29 investments decision with a total worth of 237 million euros.

Investment decisions target project with higher impact, as stated in Finnfund’s strategy. As many as 96% of new investment decisions made in 2019 dealt with projects with “good” or “excellent” impact, based on our ex ante assessment.

New investment decisions target mainly (78%) countries of low or lower-middle income, in which the need for sustainable development investments is greatest.

In 2019, new financing decisions were divided fairly evenly among the continents. Approximately 35% were allocated to Africa and approximately 20% to Asia and Latin America.

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.

List of investments in portfolio

Finnfund publishes information about its investees according to the Disclosure Policy, which was updated in 2018.

Disclosure will be made as soon as possible after financing has been agreed. In the case of investment funds, the share of Finnfund’s financing (%) is disclosed after the final closing of the fund. Information on the portfolio companies financed by the investment fund will be published at least once a year.
