We bring an Active Management approach to all of our investment activities – both in the more traditional investment management side and our Private Equity funds.
In line with the unparalleled opportunities in Sub-Saharan Africa and the enormous development potential in many markets, we are uniquely focused on greenfield and brownfield investments requiring a more substantial build of new capacities and facilities. These types of projects often have a long-term transformative nature in a national economy, fulfilling substantial job creation and other developmental objectives. Our Active Management team is specifically composed of industry specialists to execute these development investments with best practices, tenacity and pace.
Our approach to Active Management further focuses on uncovering great companies and enhancing their performance by providing required capital and our operational experience to existing management teams. We help our portfolio companies to grow core businesses, engage in new ventures, and make strategic acquisitions or other critical changes to support their long-term growth strategy – literally unlock their potential.
We provide not only capital, but crucially bring the expertise of our Active Management teams to provide strategic guidance on a variety of operational, leadership, governance and financial improvements of our portfolio companies.
While committing our resources to helping companies realise their growth potential, thus benefitting employees, communities and other stakeholders, we always remain focused on generating positive cash flows and the overarching value creation goals for our investors.
