INVESTMENT PHILOSOPHY

Patient Capital

We understand that investing in small and medium enterprises operating in Africa requires a commitment to longer term horizons, in order to create sustainable growth.

03

Validated Impact

We support portfolio businesses in creating measurable impact, driven by deep insight into the needs of employees and the communities they live in. We strive to constantly improve our means of measuring impacts and our understanding of what constitutes positive outcomes.

02

Partnership

We emphasize even-handed relationships with our businesses, built on transparency and mutual respect of abilities, talents and experience.

04

Sector Agnostic

We take a bottom-up approach by identifying high-performing, values-led leadership teams with compelling, differentiated products. While production sectors play a role in our decision-making, they are just one of many criteria we look for in potential business partners.
