What we do in Equity Funds


As a trusted partner to our regions' fund managers, the EBRD aims to develop private markets and strengthen their global competitiveness.

Our profile as an investor

Long track record
Investing since 1991, we are the largest fund investor in the regions we operate in, leveraging our deep understanding of our markets for greater impact.

Anchor investor
Typically committing up to 25% of a fund's capital, an investment from the EBRD acts as a stamp of quality, enhancing the profile of a fund offering and attracting more investment from third parties.

Impact oriented
An ESG investor since inception, the EBRD is committed to supporting SMEs, innovative companies, digitalisation, inclusivity and green initiatives.

Support for new general partners
The EBRD Funds team invests in 10-15 funds annually, with 50% of commitments going to first-time fund managers historically.

A broad mandate
The Funds team has an investment mandate covering funds across the entire private markets spectrum, including buyout, growth, venture capital, real assets, mezzanine, private debt and others.

Strong governance
We dedicate significant resources upfront to assessing a fund's structure, governance and alignment. With advisory committee membership a condition of our investment, we ensure governance best-practice is followed throughout the life of the fund.
