Private Equity

FMO has a clear role to play in providing risk capital in the form of private equity and mezzanine finance, which is often most scarce in high-risk environments. By acting as an equity investor, we get closer to companies and can increase our ESG impact. As mezzanine investors we can often achieve the same impact while also being able to find a tailor-made financing solution for an investee company. Private equity and mezzanine also offer attractive returns, which contributes to our long-term financial strength.

Our private equity model is based on partnerships with fund managers. We invest in a wide range of funds and co-invest directly in projects alongside these funds.
