Norfund works as a minority financial investor, and entrepreneurs or industrial investors are in the lead in our projects. We depend on strong, capable partners who share our values and goals. Norfund also relies on good relations and dialogue with several non-investor partners in the international development sector.
Norfund is an active investor. Our ownership will normally not exceed 35 % of a company. This ensures that we support local ownership and encourage international investments, both public and private, in developing countries.
Norfund provides risk capital and competence to companies in developing countries on a commercial basis. As an active investor with a long-term investment horizon, Norfund searches continuously for relevant projects in our priority investment areas and geographies.
Partner with us – companies
We offer risk capital and expertise to companies that meet our strategic priorities
Partner with us-investors
Co-investing with other experienced international investors enables us to provide the industrial expertise and experience that is needed for each investment.
Norfund also has a number of strategic investments in defined companies, where each investment platform manages a set of assets in a defined business area.
We search continuously for additional international and Norwegian investors who are willing to invest in developing countries.
Partner with us – funds
Through fund investments, Norfund reaches more companies and other business areas, than we could on our own. The fund managers contribute to developing local, sustainable companies based on local knowledge, industrial insight and efficiency initiatives
The achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals requires good partnerships and cooperation
