We manage 7 funds on behalf of 24 international investors, development funders, banks, corporates and foundations with committed capital in excess of US$320 million. We currently have on-the-ground local teams in 14 offices across 12 countries with a target of 17 offices in 15 countries and US$550 million in committed capital by the end of 2013.
