About the fund

The fund’s primary investment objective is to achieve medium to long term capital appreciation by investing in Peruvian and Colombian unlisted emerging and growth oriented small and medium enterprises (SMEs) through equity and equity-related instruments. Through those investments, the fund is expected to accelerate the growth of portfolio companies over a period of 3 – 5 years, after which time the fund manager is going to exit the fund’s positions. 

LGF is managed by Small Enterprise Assistance Funds (SEAF), a global investment firm specializing in SME investment. Based in Washington D.C., SEAF invests multiple countries through an international network of offices in Central and Eastern Europe, Latin America, and Asia.
