Investing for impact and return...

FMO is a triple-A bank with more than 45 years experience investing in the private sector in emerging and frontier markets.

As a development bank we know that even the world’s most underdeveloped regions offer significant opportunities for business and investment. We reach out to those underserved markets and encourage the growth of responsible and profitable businesses in key sectors for development.

We actively challenge the businesses we invest in to meet high international standards with regard to the welfare of people, business integrity and the environment. By investing in their businesses in this manner, we enable them to operate and grow sustainably for the long term, creating jobs and generating taxes that strengthen local communities and economies. Such positive changes are a rich source of financial returns.

FMO contributes to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as part of its core business. We seek opportunities to help investors fund projects that contribute to the SDGs, forging new partnerships for positive change and enhancing the impact of our and others’ activities.

Thanks to our vast experience and long track record, we can offer investors the comfort to invest with us. We comply with internationally-accepted banking standards and are supervised by the Dutch Central Bank (DNB).
