:Types of International Financing Methods


  1. Non-risk financing methods are all investment methods in which the funder expects the expected return of the invested resources from the economic performance of the activity or investment plan, while accepting the risk arising from the use of financial resources in the activity or plan. What characterizes these methods, no matter what the financing framework, is that they do not guarantee repayment of foreign funds by the government or commercial banks, and include foreign direct investment, public-private partnerships, civil partnerships and contractual arrangements. Which are defined as follows:
    Foreign Direct Investment: If the financing is of foreign origin and the investor considers the permanent interest and the funder expects the return of the invested resources from the economic performance of the activity, expecting the return of the invested resources from the economic performance of the activity. Either the plan is invested and there is no guarantee from the government or commercial banks to repay the principal and the profits of capital, this way is called foreign direct investment financing.

    Public-Private Partnership: The way in which the private sector establishes a company in which the government has no stake, and long-term contractual arrangements for the delivery of infrastructure or services between the public and private parties take place, with each party taking on responsibilities that are better than its own. It comes out and every risk is allocated to a person who can manage it at a lower cost.

    Civic Participation: A foreign investor's share capital investment in an Iranian company, whether new or existing, whose shareholder or foreign investor stake in such a company is not subject to restriction, and the investor can play a role in managing and managing its affairs.

    Contractual Arrangements: The set of ways in which the use of foreign capital is solely subject to agreements made between the parties to the contract. In other words, the rights of the foreign investor do not arise as a result of his direct participation in the capital of the Iranian venture capital firm. Rather, it relies solely on the parties' contractual agreements. Foreign investment in this framework can be done in all sectors. The return of capital and the benefits of such investments are also derived from the economic performance of the investment plan, without the assurance of the government, banks and state-owned companies.
