Equity Investments

Equity investments provide developmental support and long-term growth capital that private enterprises need. We invest directly in companies’ and financial institutions’ equity and also through private-equity funds.

IFC generally invests between 5 percent and 20 percent of a company’s equity. We encourage the companies we invest in to broaden share ownership through public listings, thereby deepening local capital markets. We also invest through profit- participating loans, convertible loans, and preferred shares.

IFC Nominee Directorships

IFC supports best practices in corporate governance by sourcing and nominating highly qualified professionals to serve on the boards of investee companies.
