Nefco’s own capital

At the beginning of 2023, Nefco’s own capital amounted to EUR 119.3 million. At the end of the year it totalled EUR 130.0 million, mainly due to increased lending to Nordic SMEs and earnings from interest, as well as repayments of pre-war investments in Ukraine. The return for the 2023 financial year was EUR 10.8 million (2022: EUR -53.3m).
At the end of 2023, Nefco had 83 active investments, with a total of EUR 205.2 million in committed funds (2022: 78, EUR 214.8m) in the investment portfolios of Nordic SMEs and Eastern Europe. In 2023, eight new Nordic SME scale-up investments of EUR 20.8 million (2022: 12; EUR 37.1m) and four fast-track loans totalling EUR 1.8 million (2022: 7; EUR 3.1m) were agreed. 
Based on a preliminary assessment, the leveraging ratio of Nefco financing is estimated to be 2.0-4.0, meaning that for each euro of Nefco financing, two to four euros of additional financing have been mobilised for the project or company being financed.

Of this, EUR 440 million (2022: EUR 261m) had been allocated to concluded, agreed and ongoing projects.
