SIFEM - Swiss Investment Fund for Emerging Markets

SIFEM supports first credit fund focusing on emerging markets globally

SIFEM is investing USD 10m in the Abraaj Global Credit Fund. With a target size of USD 500m, this is the first credit fund to focus only on emerging markets globally, and is a timely opportunity for SIFEM to support mid-sized companies in developing countries in a financial sector de-risking environment where foreign and local banks extend fewer loans.
