Equity portfolio

Oikocredit invests in financial institutions and social enterprises with high development impact, as well as specialized equity funds. Fundamental to Oikocredit’s investment philosophy is a dual return. This means a reasonable financial return coupled with a significant social return.

We invest in financially sustainable companies and, occasionally, earlier-stage companies if they are likely to become profitable within the next three years.

The majority of our portfolio is made up of microfinance institutions. However, we are diversifying into non-financial businesses with a high development potential, including fair trade and renewable energy.

We have equity investments all over the world:

  • Africa
  • Latin America
  • Asia
  • Central Asia and Eastern Europe
