financial participation/investment


Explanation:
I think a little more context would be helpful. Is this a philantropist who liked to give away his money or is he a wealthy man investing in different businesses?

See this page from Canada and the French equivalent.

Actually if he had "ambitions économiques", he's probably not that much of a philanthropist, or am I a cynic?

financial partnership


Explanation:
I don't think the guy is investing, I think he is getting into lucrative financial partnerships "to further the trojan horse of his economic ambitions "


Capital- investissement: il s'agit d'un investissement réalisé pour le compte d'institutions financières qui recouvre les financements en capital d'une entreprise: il comprend le capital d'amorçage(finance un projet de recherche ou de définition du produit), le capital-risque (financement avec prise de participation dans une entreprise en création ou au tout début de son activité), le capital- développement (pour une entreprise déjà existante), le capital- transmission (finance le rachat d'une entreprise par ses salariés ou par des tiers), le pré IPO (finance une entreprise avant son introduction en Bourse) et le retournement ou capital de redressement (pour aider une entreprise en difficulté à se redresser). Une forte rentabilité sur un court terme est attendue en contrepartie du risque encouru.

(taking) equity stakes


Explanation:
A "participation" is a (minority) ownership interest, not 'financial aid' as usually understood, and not so vague as a 'partnership' either; and in this company's case, its motives are not those of a portfolio investor (i.e., strictly return on investment).
