The Authority’s 3-fold mandate is underpinned by the country’s development needs. Across the three funds, investments are made in high priority projects with the aim of catalysing infrastructure developments on a national scale to stimulate economic growth.

To deliver its development objectives, NSIA either sponsors or invests in projects and programmes which afford long-term socio-economic benefit to the Nation.

The NIF focuses on domestic infrastructure investments that meet the following four criteria: alignment with national priority, potential for attractive commercial and social returns; ability to attract both domestic and foreign private sector participation, and conducive regulatory environment.

Out of the fifteen investible sectors identified at the inception of the NSIA, the core areas of initial focus are: agriculture, financial markets infrastructure, healthcare, motorways, power, gas industrialization and innovation & technology.

Other sectors will be addressed as assets under management increase or if compelling opportunities become available.
