We invest in Small and Medium sized companies (SMEs). They are crucial for sustainable economic growth, they create jobs, innovate and pay tax. As such they have an important local impact.
SMEs have limited access to long term financing. Banks often have neither the capacity nor the capital to provide growth financing at acceptable terms and conditions. On the other hand, micro finance solutions are not suitable for SMEs in view of their need for long term capital.
SOVEC offers tailor made, long term commitment and capital, both in equity and debt. Our transactions typically range from a few hundred thousand to 2 million USD. We aim at a return of 20% at portfolio level.
SOVEC invests in “Essential Services”.
