The Finnfund evaluation set out to assess Finnfund’s historical performance, the extent to which it has followed its mandate and annual guidance, and the likelihood that the 2018-2025 strategy will achieve its objectives across two phases. Phase 1 reviewed Finnfund’s record on development impact, and alignment with its mandate. Phase 2 appraised the future strategy based on fieldwork in three countries in Latin America and Africa.
