LPs are strategic investors with a long term commitment with cleantech operations and investments. The main financial incentives for Limited Partners include a leverage of 1:1 quasi-capital commitment from CORFO plus a project finance leverage scheme with up to 50:50 deb-to-equity ratio depending on each particular project.

CORFO’s credit line can be raised to 1.5:1 subject to specific milestones. Thus, the total Fund capacity could raised up to US$46.25 million.
