From 2011, CDC will only invest in countries in Africa and South Asia. Throughout its long history CDC has adapted its investment policy to maintain a focus on the world's poorest countries. As areas such as Latin America and Central Asia and China have grown in prosperity in recent years, our capital is no longer needed and we have changed our investment policy to reflect this. This means that CDC's portfolio of current investments often includes companies outside the regions stipulated by the policy that governs our new investments. These investments will be sold in due course and we will reinvest the capital according to the latest investment policy. The map below shows where our capital is at work and includes links to case studies of some of our portfolio companies.
