Equity Impact

Equity Impact

A strong reliable partner with a long term view


Long-term partnership
As a minority investor, we work together with our co-shareholders and partners to create long-term value for our investee companies and their shareholders, employees and communities


Strong support
Working with us, our investment partners gain access to the decades of the EBRD’s investment experience, our broad regional presence, industry expertise, insight into macroeconomic and geopolitical trends, and a powerful network of relationships in the private and public sectors


Value creation
We play an active role and collaborate with management and our co-shareholders in shaping our investee companies’ strategic direction, directly utilising the EBRD’s own capabilities and through the appointment of independent non-executive directors to boards


An impact investor advancing governance, environmental and social goals

As minority investors, we do not control our investee companies. However, we participate actively in their governance to advocate and support the improvement of their environmental, social and governance standards. Embracing and pursuing these objectives jointly with our partners not only generates significant shareholder value but also creates meaningful positive impact in the wider society

Value
creation

As part of our value creation, we identify development goals that, once implemented, will lead to a more sustainable enterprise and economy. These goals range from corporate governance or digital transition to equality and inclusion at the work place, reducing environmental footprint and climate risk management

Expert network

We work with our companies throughout our investment period to implement a value creation plan and advance development goals. Our internal and external experts have an outstanding track record of providing technical advice, helping our investees to improve performance, raise standards and manage risks

Strong governance

We seek to appoint a non-executive directors in our equity investments to strengthen the company’s governance and to support its value creation efforts

Flexible capital

We safeguard our investment and our impact gains through active monitoring and by providing additional debt or equity capital, if needed, to fuel further growth
