SIFEM - Swiss Investment Fund for Emerging Markets



Risk capital funds

Risk capital funds are long-term equity capital positions in funds that acquire an interest in local SMEs and fast-growing businesses, actively support these in their growth and their professionalization, and then sell their shareholdings at a profit.


SIFEM makes loans available to local banks, leasing companies, micro-financing companies and other financial institutions. Financing is generally granted on a long-term basis at market conditions.
