Proparco investit dans le capital d'Abraaj Global Credit Fund (AGCF). Ce fonds investit dans des entreprises de taille intermédiaire en pleine croissance et situées dans les pays émergents en leur proposant des solutions de financement innovantes et peu développées dans ces pays.
Présentation du client

AGCF is Abraaj Group’s first initiative in the context of the development of the Mezzanine and Private Debt area of its strategy. Abraaj Group is one of the leading venture capital players in emerging countries with over USD 10bn under management and over 300 employees, including 180 operational staff in 17 offices around the world.

Description du projet

AGCF is a Mezzanine fund with a target size of USD 500m which finances high-growth midcaps in emerging markets. The fund offers innovative financing solutions which are not readily available on the targeted markets. AGCF has a team of 16 people who are also supported by the entire Abraaj Group network.

Impact du projet

The main positive impacts relate to:
- The creation and preservation of some 4,700 jobs;
- A role in boosting capital markets in emerging countries, by targeting geographical areas where this type of financing is still limited;
- A contribution to private sector development, thanks to innovative financing solutions that support the development of the vast majority of target companies (capex financing, refinancing to free up cash flows, external growth);
-  Positive environmental and social impacts with the application of IFC’s Performance Standards and PROPARCO’s standards.
