The Overseas Private Investment Corporation is launching its 2015 Global Engagement Call for Proposals (the “Call”) on May 11, 2015. OPIC is inviting proposals from fund managers seeking OPIC financing for funds that invest in companies operating in OPIC-eligible emerging market countries via direct equity, debt, and equity-related instruments. The Call will be open to managers from all regions and strategies.

OPIC is the U.S. Government’s development finance institution mandated with mobilizing private sector capital to address critical development challenges. Among OPIC’s priorities are catalyzing economic and social development, promoting sustainable use of renewable resources, and facilitating commercial investment in low-income countries.

OPIC seeks to select one or more funds targeting investments in OPIC-eligible countries for expansion, business development, spin-outs, management buyouts, restructuring, and/or privatization. This selection is performed through a competitive process. OPIC has sole discretion to respond to multiple agency objectives in making its selection, including policy priorities, market needs, and the ongoing construction of a balanced and diversified portfolio.

NOTE: The 2015 Global Engagement Call for Proposals is no longer accepting applications.
