What We Do

KIFFWA invests in the development phase of water initiatives with a view to stimulate project development and increasing investment flows into the water sector. Our role is one of a co-developer.

KIFFWA provides early-stage capital and financial expertise to support the creation of viable water investment opportunities and attract (private) providers of finance. Within this range, our services include:

  • Direct investments in the development phase of water initiatives
  • Transaction advisory services
  • Technical support
  • Fundraising support

Creating leverage by ‘de-risking’ the development phase

KIFFWA’s unique approach

By providing early-stage capital and finance expertise to lead developers, KIFFWA supports initiatives across several water sub-sectors to reach financial close.

All water sub-sectors are eligible:

  • Ports
  • Hydro Power
  • Drinking Water
  • Industrial Water
  • Irrigation
  • Sanitation & Hygiene
  • Waste Water Treatment
  • Integrated Water Resources Management
  • Flood Protection
  • Water Reuse
  • Desalination

Besides offering capital during the development stage, KIFFWA’s unique selling point is to bring water-financing expertise to the table: structuring the initiative in such a way that it becomes investment-ready and attractive for different types of financiers.

In order to operate in a financially sustainable way, KIFFWA expects to earn back its investments in carefully selected water initiatives, allowing KIFFWA to be revolving and hence, continue its operations: co-developing other initiatives. KIFFWA therefore seeks a refund as soon as financial close is reached.
