We invest in businesses and environments where our funds contribute to creating inclusive growth, tax income, job opportunities and faith in the future.

Examples of investments and financial support

Since 1979 we have invested in more than 230 companies in the poorest countries in the world. Here are some recent examples. 

The new map of the world

Our ambition is to re-create the financial map of the world.
We can achieve this through a strong network in combination with sound investments in some of the world’s poorest countries.

Our portfolio

We always aim to establish a good balance between risktaking, geographical spread and variation in investment instruments, such as equity, funds and loans.

Equity investments range between MUSD 3 and 10. Through loans we can finance larger companies together with other financiers. Investments in funds enable us to cost-efficiently reach more and smaller businesses in countries which would otherwise have been difficult to operate in without local presence.

The portfolio's total contracted amount at the close of 2017 was 4.571 billion SEK, divided between 65 investments in 28 countries.
