Since 2012, we’ve only invested in Africa and South Asia. Investments outside these regions are from our pre-2012 portfolio.

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.

- Communications and IT Services, Education, Financial services, Health, Infrastructure, Manufacturing, Other consumer services
- Investment type
We provide capital in three broad ways: direct equity, debt, and intermediated equity (principally through investment funds).
