INVEST WITH IFU

    WITH WHOM CAN IFU INVEST?

    IFU can invest with all Danish companies that meet our four basic conditions

    All Danish companies can benefit from IFU’s services. However, at least four conditions must be met:

    • A Danish investor or Danish interest* is needed in the project in the host country;
    • The business operation must be deemed to be commercially viable;
    • Projects must have a positive development impact in the host country;
    • The host country must be on the list of developing countries eligible for IFU investments.

    Furthermore, IFU does not finance projects within certain product areas. See the list here.

    *A Danish interest is defined as:

    • A Danish investor
    • A Danish company supplying goods, technology, know-how, management or services
    • Indirect financial participation in the project company
    • A Danish company sourcing products from the project company
    • A Danish participation on the board or in the management team of the project company
    • Use of state-of-the-art Danish technology in the project
    • Direct or indirect job creation in Denmark

    COUNTRIES WHERE IFU AND IFU MANAGED FUNDS CAN INVEST

    IFU and IFU managed funds can invest in more than 140 countries in Asia, Africa, Latin America and parts of Europe.

    IFU

    IFU can invest in all countries on the OECD’s DAC list of development aid recipients.

    At least 50 per cent of IFU’s investments, measured over a rolling three year period, must be made in host countries with a GNI per capita income below 80% of the upper limit for LMIC (Lower Middle Income Countries), according to the World Bank’s classification. In 2019 this limit is USD 3,116 (2017 level).

    In 2016, 67 per cent of the investments were below the limit and over a rolling three year period the figure is 56 per cent.
