Aga Khan Fund for Economic Development



AKFED has an interest in 125 companies.



These companies employ over 55,000 employees.


US$ 4 billion

Our combined revenues are approximately US$ 4 billion per year. All profits are reinvested into development projects.

[AKFED] is a for-profit, international development agency that, because of its institutional background and social conscience, invests in countries, sectors and projects, on criteria far different from those of a straightforward commercial investor. Investment decisions are based more on the prospects for better lives for the constituencies of people that will be impacted by the investments and their results rather than on bottom line profitability. AKFED does seek to generate profits, but they are entirely reinvested in future development initiatives.
