IN SUMMARY

Investment funds play an increasingly important role in financial markets in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC).

Given the significant shortage of risk capital in LAC, financial institutions are supporting the work of financial intermediaries such as investment funds. These funds not only invest directly but also attract other stakeholders from the private sector. Their financing enables the development and growth of key industries and companies for economic development and job creation.

OUR COMMITMENT

We operate in priority sectors for Latin America and the Caribbean. We support business development in areas such as manufacturing, education, and food, among many others. We make impact investments in financial inclusion and climate change adaptation and mitigation and support vulnerable populations. We also finance projects in priority sectors such as energy and transport.

We not only ensure the financial viability of each project but also the long-term social and economic impact. We consider environmental and social aspects, gender equality, climate change, and corporate governance.

Our in-depth knowledge of the region's sectors, regulations, and economic and political environments, as well as our network of contacts and offices in 26 Latin American and Caribbean countries, makes us your partner of choice.
