As opposed to offering aid to countries, Norfund is a different tool for Norway to reach emerging or developing countries. And this tool is through investments into commercially sustainable businesses.


What is the best thing about your job?

The best thing about my job is the continuous pursuit of creating an impact in developing countries.

What is the most challenging thing about your job?

The most challenging thing about my job is that every country is unique with its own nuances. Therefore, every new investment opportunity assessment is a crash course on the country's industry and macroeconomic environment.

Why did you choose to study in Norway?

Norway is unique and non-traditional. Additionally, Norway has a good reputation for building a well-rounded society which I wanted to experience.
