In May 2018, CDC committed $40 million and played a pivotal role in anchoring the first close for CX Partners II.
CX will invest and create value in high quality, scalable businesses, which provide employment and on-the-job training to a significant number of unskilled and semi-skilled workers.
Since 2012, we’ve only invested in Africa and South Asia. Investments outside these regions are from our pre-2012 portfolio.
- South Asia
We have seven priority sectors. However, we continue to invest outside these sectors, largely in the most challenging regions, as new investment supporting any sector helps to underpin the private sector, and create jobs and livelihoods for people. For funds, the sectors listed here are those the fund has invested in so far.
- Financial services, Health, Other consumer services
- Investment type
We provide capital in three broad ways: direct equity, debt, and intermediated equity (principally through investment funds).
