In 2015, Triodos Microfinance Fund aims to grow its assets under management to EUR 265 million. The fund sees strong demand for financing and will continue to add new investments to the portfolio and further diversify its country exposure. New equity investments are expected to materialise, increasing the total equity share in the fund’s portfolio to approximately 20%. The fund will continue to target a broad range of institutions active in the financial inclusion sphere, such as (traditional) MFIs, SME banks and micro-leasing companies. The fund plans to further diversify its regional exposure, both in terms of debt and equity.
The fund expects a positive return that will be in line with the five year average annual return. The actual return will be determined partly by the change in value of participations, provisions and exchange rate results on unhedged local currencies.
