We can provide the long-term investment you need to grow your business. Working closely with you, we tailor our services to fit your specific needs.
FMO finances commercially viable businesses and projects in key sectors for development. We offer financing in the form of loans, equity investments and guarantees to encourage sustainable growth.
We realize that it takes more than finance to build a sustainable business that positively impacts people, communities and society at large. That is why we work closely with you to integrate environmental, social and governance practices into your core business. Additionally, we offer capacity development to strengthen your organizational skills in these areas.
Sustainability is an integral part of who we are and how we do business. We know that businesses that incorporate sustainability into their core investment processes enjoy cost savings, increased productivity and business opportunities, enhanced access to capital and international markets, and improved risk management. In the long term, this will ensure that long-term profit and viability go hand in hand with enduring economic and social impact.
We offer long-term financing through loans (including syndicated loans) and equity. Whenever possible we provide our funding in local currencies.
We offer direct medium and long-term loans at both fixed and variable interest rates and with a repayment grace period where needed.
We arrange syndicated loans to raise larger financing amounts for our clients in an efficient way.
We invest equity directly or indirectly (through funds) or we co-invest with partners.
As an investment partner, we provide stable, long-term capital. We work with fund managers and investee companies to integrate sustainability in their core operations - building a successful business for the long term.
In order to ensure that companies have access to international markets and can participate in global trading, we structure our guarantees so that they meet the specific needs of the borrower, the market and the targeted creditors.
