Guarantee-aligned Equity Investment
100%

Introduction

In 2005, a ‘Guarantee-aligned with equity investments’ was introduced after the government announced its ‘comprehensive measure to support SMEs’ competitiveness’ in July 2004, but in 2011 KODIT stopped providing new investment as the National Assembly and the Board of Audit and Inspection pointed out lack of legal ground.
In 2014, KODIT restarted guarantee-aligned equity investment after the revision of the Korea Credit Guarantee Fund Act in May 2013. It was enacted to improve financial structures for SMEs with direct investment (guarantee-aligned) which have high growth potential but face difficulties to access finance in private investment market.
KODIT invested in 55 SMEs with worth of KRW 53.2 billion since its start of investment in 2005 to 2010 and after guarantee-aligned equity investment became officially authorized business in 2014, KODIT invested worth of KRW 124 billion in 164 SMEs until 2017. At the end of 2018, the balance of investment is KRW 115 billion to 280 SMEs.
