Latin America

Latin America has enjoyed strong economic growth for a number of years, and this positive trend is expected to continue. IFU has completed almost 120 investments in Latin America.

Brazil is one of the so-called BRIC countries (Brazil, Russia, India and China), which are of particular interest to Danish companies. On the other hand, many other countries in the region also enjoy high economic growth and therefore present attractive investment opportunities.


In response to the growing interest in investing in Latin America in the past few years, IFU has strengthened its Latin American investment team.

Investments of almost DKK 8 billion

IFU has completed close to 120 investments in Latin America in partnership with Danish companies such as FLSmidth, Burmeister & Wain Scandinavian Contractor, Danfoss and Ingemann Food. The total contracted investment amounts to almost DKK 8 billion, of which IFU has provided more than DKK 1.3 billion either as equity or loans

IFU's Latin American investment team has offered advisory services and invested in several sectors, including manufacturing, infrastructure, agriculture and food, transport, wind power and oil and gas.

The Latin American investment team covers Argentina, Brasil, Chile, Peru, Paraguay, Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador, Ecuador, Nicaragua, Bolivia, Columbia, Cuba, Belize, Dominica, the Dominican Republic, Grenada, Guyana, Haiti, Jamaica, Surinam, Saint Lucia and Saint Vincent.
