How Norfund is catalytic

In addition to its own investments, Norfund shall act as a catalyst by mobilising private capital and expertise that would not otherwise have been available in poor countries.

Norfund is catalytic by:

  • Sharing risk with industrial investors in a way that encourages them to invest
  • Providing a quality stamp that encourages financial investors to invest
  • Strengthening the equity base & quality of a project so it is bankable & can attract others’ finance. 
  • Doing successful investments in developing countries and informing other investors about the investment opportunities
