How does the SBA participate in an SBIC?

Answer: 

The government itself does not make direct investments or target specific industries. Essentially, the SBIC program is a “fund of funds” – meaning that portfolio management and investment decisions are left to qualified private fund managers. As a result, SBA has very minimal direct involvement in an SBIC’s portfolio management operations.
