Private equity and venture capital are critical to building dynamic, job-creating companies that drive prosperity, provide essential goods and services, and strengthen the middle class. IFC works with private equity funds in emerging markets to provide capital to companies and mobilize money for renewable energy, infrastructure, and other projects.
In FY19, we made about $1.1 billion in long-term investments in this sector, including $555 million mobilized from other investors.
