FCA Investments (FCAI) is an impact investor specialising in developing countries and fragile states. We seek to leverage the power of finance as a means to unlock opportunities for communities in areas of the world that are underserved by investing in SME’s while putting the social & environmental impact at the front and centre of our investment decisions. We are a 100% subsidiary of FCA, which is the largest Finnish international aid organization. FCAI seeks to build on the core competencies of FCA which has been in operation for 70 years and leverage these to ensure that the investments we make are not only sustainable but that they have a significant positive impact on the people in the countries we operate in. To do this FCAI has made a conscious decision to earmark its investments to those countries where there is already a presence of FCA in order to utilize the institutional knowledge and build on FCA’s record of accomplishment in these countries to maximise synergie
