2012 will see us build the Agribusiness, food & water team further and define more sharply our focus within the sector and our desired market positioning. As a modest team active in a large sector, we need to think carefully about the role we wish to play and the kind of companies we wish to finance. While the majority of our Agribusiness clients are in Latin America and Eastern Europe, we plan to expand further in Africa and Asia.

We will continue to cooperate with partners to learn from them. We plan to further intensify our cooperation with Rabobank, which has extensive experience in the food & agriculture sector; we are eager to find fresh ways to optimize our cooperation so we can add to their products. We will also flesh out our initiative with DEG and Proparco to target the sustainable food supply chain, and create a joint market approach.
