Investment Strategy

Our investment teams currently cover three countries in East Africa (Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania) and three countries in West Africa (Ghana, Liberia and Sierra Leone).

Our objective is to provide long-term, flexible financing to support the growth and expansion of existing businesses with strong management teams. Typically this means businesses that have at least three years audited financials and a track record of sales and profits.

We can invest up to $3 million per company and can source capital for larger transactions through our international co-investment partners. Our investment structures are flexible and tailored to the needs of the business and the risks involved.

We can invest in many different sectors but we are particularly interested in businesses in markets like financial services, property, healthcare, technology, business services, insurance, education, manufacturing and agro-processing.

We are interested in supporting entrepreneurs who share our vision of creating large scale and successful businesses. In exceptional circumstances we can invest in early stage businesses and start-ups but only where management teams have directly relevant prior experience and where the business has a clear route to profitability within a short period.
