Investment Strategy

Turkey Development Fund (TDF) will focus on capital and structured finance investments for companies with high expansion potential.

Sectorial/Company Focus

  • Priority sectors in the development and critical technologies

  • Providing expansion capital (companies that work with the accurate business model but lack the capital needed for expansion and/or requiring balance sheet rehabilitation)
  • Solution of organization problems that occur due to 2nd/3rd generation change and/or managerial incompetence
  • Strategic support in the fields of management, operational productivity, institutionalization and resource utilization

Investment Criteria

  • Experienced and proficient management team/partners that adopt high ethical values
  • Determination of the investment exit strategy from the day zero
  • Cash-generating capacity/potential and high cash conversion ratio
  • Potential to be amongst the leading regional players with the help of new investments, procurement and consolidations
  • Managing the impacts of such risks as exchange rate, commodity, interest, regulation, etc. on the balance sheet and income growth
