IFC’s Corporate Private Equity operation focuses on investment opportunities in privately negotiated transactions across a wide-range of investment products for corporate, institutional and individual investors. These equity investments include leveraged buyouts of established companies, acquisitions of or seed capital for start-up businesses in both established and emerging industries, corporate partnerships and turnarounds, minority stake investments as well as consolidations. Our knowledge of capital instruments and our experience with private equity provide clients and investors with the best possible solutions to meet their long-term strategic objectives.
Our current prime focus for investment is the Energy sector. With the emergence of China and India’s growing economies, this sector has tremendous short- and long-term growth potential.
IFC’s experience in both “West to East” and “East to West” investment transactions gives it a strong and unique advantage in bringing together investors and businesses from both sides of the globe. It’s experience as an investor in its own right as well as in putting together investment packages means it is able to understand and meet the demands and requirements of participants on both sides of a transaction.
One of the cornerstones of IFC’s Corporate Private Equity business is the ability to tailor the structure of each investment to meet the needs of each investor and situation. We can help our clients invest in a range of securities including both equity and mezzanine debt, or some combination of the two. We do not have preconceived notions or formulae for the proportions of equity or debt, or of different types of debt, in any transaction. This means that IFC can customize the best capital and debt structure for each individual investment.
Each client is different, and each investment situation is unique. Whether you run a family-owned business or a business that you've built up over many years, we realize that your company is important to you. IFC offers customized solutions that are creative and flexible and, where necessary, utilize the resources and expertise of other areas of our company. IFC and its investment partners seek a set of investment solutions tailored to each client’s specific needs.
