Investments

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

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.

We invest directly in companies and indirect through financial institutions and funds, to increase the proportion of small and medium-sized enterprises and to promote entrepreneurship.

The portfolio's total contracted amount at the close of 2018 was 4.516 billion SEK, divided between 58 investments in 23 countries.
