INVESTMENT SERVICES

INVESTING IN AFRICA

Africa is the final frontier of emerging market investment, brimming with potential, economic growth and investment opportunities.

  • Six of the world’s ten fastest growing economies are in Africa

  • A vast continent with a population of over one billion people

  • Extensive untapped natural resources

  • Favourable demographics and rapid urbanization

  • Improving political outlook as well as governance frameworks

THE COMPLEXITY

Africa has broken free from a legacy of slow economic growth and poverty but investment still has complexity...

  • 54 countries

  • Thousands of ethnic communities and languages

  • Divergent systems of government and cultures

  • Many industries are dominated by family-owned businesses which are difficult to access

  • For many countries, stock exchanges or a bond market does not exist or are very small and liquidity remains a challenge due to low turnover

  • Some of the best opportunities lie in sectors like FMCG, food and drink processing, agribusiness and technology but public markets are largely concentrated in the extractive and telecoms industries.

  • The investor opportunity lies in allocation of capital to small and mid-size private companies

MITIGATING RISK AND MAKING AFRICA OPPORTUNITIES INVESTABLE

We mitigate risk by only facilitating investment opportunities in:

  • Countries where we are experienced and know how to navigate the political, regulatory and tax challenges

  • Overcoming high entry valuations by not participating in formal auction processes, preferring to construct proprietary opportunities ourselves

  • Always being ‘hands on’, we want to create investable opportunities where others cannot

  • Applying best in class finance, IT, legal, HR, governance to all the businesses we are involved in from day one, both to improve the performance of the business and to increase ability to attract capital

OUR OBJECTIVE
  • Develop investable opportunities

  • Match businesses with capital

  • Accelerate growth exponentially
