The COFIDES mission is to contribute, not only to the internationalisation of both the economy and Spanish companies, but also equally to promote economic and social development of emerging or developing countries, whilst operating within the associated profitability criteria, either through funding companies with private investment projects, involving some degree of Spanish interests, or by supporting management development tools. To fulfil its goal COFIDES can use its own financial resources as well as the funds it manages. The financing can be done through various forms of debt or equity and may be granted directly or indirectly through investment funds
The company’s vision includes being the de facto public-private funding vehicle of Spain’s Economic and Commercial Administration for direct foreign investment and hence a model for Spanish public-private venture capitalism abroad.
