Thanks to rapidly growing data consumption and rising demands for enterprise information technology (IT) services, data centers have become vital components of the modern connectivity ecosystem. The data center industry has been transforming from purely co-location models to cloud-based and edge connectivity platforms. This transition helps ensure seamless, fast, reliable data services to hyperscalers, corporates, as well as smaller businesses and public institutions.
IFC recognizes the revolutionary role of data centers in supporting digital connectivity in emerging markets. We have been active in the sector particularly in recent years, having successfully closed several transactions in Africa and Latin America regions. Our strategy is to partner with experienced global and regional investors and continue to study new markets to gauge investment opportunities.
