Invested for the Long Term

The Group has a wide array of local and international funders contributing capital. Our funders include international banks, local banks, insurance companies, private and public asset managers, as well as a number of distinguished international social impact funders.

Thanks to their commitment, we’re able to embody true teamwork work in everything we do. This is achieved through high levels of trust between each party, which is built and maintained by the highest levels of transparency.
