Abstract

In 2001, CDC Capital Partners is facing the greatest challenge in its 53-year history. Founded as part of the UK government''s post-war colonial reconstruction, it had operated as a developmental finance institution, largely issuing debt to the world''s poorest countries. Now, however, it must transform itself to become a public-private partnership (PPP) dealing in private equity projects, but still restricted to the world''s poorest countries. Can CDC succeed?
