Providing capital and advisory services from own offices
IFU provides advisory services and risk capital. The typical involvement in a project starts at the planning stage, continues during the establishment phase until the new company is able to operate on its own. When the shares are sold or the loan is repaid, the proceeds are reinvested in new project companies.
IFU’s regional office in Nairobi, Kenya, provides on-location advisory services. The locally appointed manager serves on the boards of a number of the companies established in partnership with Danish companies.
