The Task

Eliminating extreme poverty is a task which on paper can seem quite utopian. The truth is, we are already halfway there. We are determined to pursue the issues and make the investments necessary to succeed.

Welfare capital and power

In the past twenty years, the number of people who live in poverty has been reduced by half. Swedfund’s vision to eliminate poverty feels therefore all the more realistic. However, further investment in sustainable business is needed, which in turn creates growth, job opportunities and tax income in the world’s poorest countries. Our task is more important than ever.
