This investment was made under a previous strategy. We disclose information on all our current investments, but narrative information on our pre-2012 investments, when we introduced a new strategy, may be limited.
Since 2012, we’ve only invested in Africa and South Asia. Investments outside these regions are from our pre-2012 portfolio.

- Food and agriculture, Health, Infrastructure, Manufacturing

We provide capital in three broad ways: direct equity, debt, and intermediated equity (principally through investment funds).
