Our strategy

Afghanistan Investment Fund is a dedicated investment vehicle for international investors from America, Europe and Asia wishing to pursue investment opportunities in Afghanistan.

Our strategy is to invest in fastest-growing industries, sectors and cities of Afghanistan with rapidly increasing disposable income, life-style changes and the growing needs of the cities, from real estate to healthcare, education and retail. We are also focused on playing an active role in investing in Afghanistan’s natural resources and helping the country in its journey to economic self-reliance. 

The Fund allocates capital for investments in the following sectors and industries:

  • Energy
  • Mining
  • Healthcare
  • Education
  • Hospitality and Real Estate
  • Agriculture
  • Logistics
  • Construction
  • Manufacturing
  • Retail
  • Banking

The Fund will consider investments in both Greenfield and Brownfield projects as well as in distressed and startup companies. The Fund’s minimum IRR threshold for investment in projects is 20% and it intends to invest 25 – 75% of the total equity investment, with a minimum size of USD$100,000.

The Fund is expected to retain its ownership interest in the Portfolio Companies for up to six years, extendable to a maximum of eight. During that period the Fund will exit from its investments through sale of its ownership interest through any of the following routes:

  • Sale to existing  co-owners or partners of the project
  • Sale to external third parties
  • IPO on international stock exchanges
