About the Fund

The Investment Fund for North-West Russia and Eastern Europe Ltd is state-owned with Innovation Norway as the sole owner.

The assets of the Fund at incorporation consist of shares of various portfolio companies and unused uncommitted investment capital.

Furthermore, there was made a political decision that the management of the Fund should be entrusted to a professional team, operating in Kirkenes.

The Fund was at the time of establishment approximately NOK 265 million (investments and free capital). The portfolio as of today is shown in the table below.
