Our triple de-risking strategy

First Loss Tranche

The first loss capital will de-risk portfolio investments by absorbing losses (i.e. credit event and/or currency loss) that would otherwise impact the Fund's ability to pay out expected returns

Technical Assistance

The availability of a robust Technical Assistance Facility will also address major capacity constraints of both investees and financial intermediaries

Risk Sharing

Co-financing and risk-sharing from local financial service provides as part of the financial intermediation process

Our Fundraising Targets

  • The ABC Fund was launched as an “impact first fund”, with the initial commitment of €50 million in grant funding as first-loss equity.
  • The Fund is geared to attract more first-loss, senior and mezzanine shares for a total of €150 million, leveraging indicatively three times the amount of the initial grant funding and reaching €200 million.
