Our investments range from 5 million SEK to 100 million SEK ($725K to $7.5 million), averaging 20-50 million SEK. We primarily invest at the follow-on, first outside round, and buyout stages of investment, we selectively make seed investments. Our vision is to contribute to the development of profitable companies thereby stimulating sustainable economic development in our investment countries and at the same time promote Swedish interests. Swedfund offers risk capital in the form of equity, loans or guarantees. While we have specific sector initiatives in energy and the environment, we will invest in all sectors that will contribute to sustainable development. Swedfund does not invest in syndication.
