We are … Incofin
Founded in 2001, Incofin manages funds and investments in emerging countries, driven by a desire to promote inclusive progress. Our investors are leading development funds, banks, insurance companies, pension funds, alternative investment funds, high net worth and retail investors.
committed beyond investment
As a team, we are determined to achieving impact in emerging economies combined with a healthy and sustainable return. We believe in what we do. We are a team owned company, investing in our own funds.
We are not afraid of taking risks – our experience and processes allow us to manage them well. We venture into uncharted territory, pioneering investments in regions and sectors in which others would not go. It enables us to achieve a higher level of impact without compromising overall returns. This illustrates our passion to carefully push the boundaries of inclusive progress.
We commit every day to delivering a consistent pattern of successful investments with impact and returns; this is our promise to our investors, investees and their clients.

We are driven by entrepreneurial spirit and human interest alike. Our impact oriented solutions promote inclusion in communities around the globe and provide opportunities for vulnerable or less privileged people to improve their lives.
We share and encourage the entrepreneurial drive of our investees. We understand their daily challenges and successes, rooted in local realities. We support them and help develop and improve the performance of their businesses by sharing expertise that we have gathered from our years of on the ground experience worldwide.
