Frequently asked questions

Edith Heiniger

Edith Heiniger

Edith has over 20 years of extensive experience in Human Resources, over five of which have been spent at Quantum Global. She has held senior positions in Wealth Management companies, including Deutsche Bank and KPMG.

What differentiates QGG from another asset management firm?

We pride ourselves on having a passion for Africa, and what differentiates us from other asset management firms is that our “Africa for Africa” strategy is uniquely driven by our client focus, building of strategic partnerships and a deep engagement in African markets that lead to strong developmental outcomes.
To honour our word of staying true to our African roots, we are particularly interested in people who have experience of working with Africa, where a majority of our work is undertaken. The commitment to the work we do in Africa is an important part of our culture.

What is the advantage of joining QGG?

Quantum Global is a very boutique business that is fast growing across Africa, with a strong track record in sourcing innovative deals and opportunities in different African countries and industries, and with this comes a wealth of opportunities within the Group.
Much like at the beginning, we are truly entrepreneurial and value innovation amongst our employees, so there are many opportunities to contribute and create at Quantum Global. Hard work, tenacity and a result-oriented approach are matched with recognition and support.

What culture can I expect as a new hire at QGG?

Quantum Global is a dynamic, fast paced and entrepreneurial environment, which owes a lot to the values and work ethic of our company founder.
We encourage flexibility and cultural awareness of the diverse markets in which we operate. To support this we regularly organise cultural mapping workshops that offer guidance for conducting business in different parts of Africa as well as reinforce deeper understanding of the continent and its many intricacies.
We regularly work with staff to fulfill their strategic imperatives and play a constructive role in the Group’s enterprises.

How does the core focus on Africa impact the working environment?

The fact that our core business is centred around Africa, means that we have a group of very dedicated colleagues who all bring their expertise to investments they are passionate about and that make a real difference in Africa. This is a tangible force and together with a sense of urgency which we all feel, this creates a very motivating environment.
Furthermore, with a third of our workforce being drawn from African countries, we continue to be close to the latest developments on the continent and have the advantage of constantly learning from each other.

How many nationalities work at QGG?

Our workforce is currently drawn from 32 nationalities, 30% of our employees are African or of African roots, and nearly thirty of them are based in Mauritius – the hub to our private equity vehicles and African investment homebase.
Over the almost five years of which I have been a part of the Quantum Global group, we have grown significantly and have expanded our footprint across swathes of the African continent. As we do so and open offices in new markets, we look to continue bringing in fresh talent while retaining the great talent within the business today.

What opportunities of growth can I expect?

We consciously invest in our staff in order to maintain our strong workforce and we are fully committed to acknowledging talent and achievements that arise as part of our day to day work.
We provide all employees with an annual review, where they can quietly and thoroughly discuss their performance over the past year, their goals for the year to come, and their interests in general. On project basis or within a promotion or change of scope, we give our employees chances to grow within or beyond their roles.

How do I best connect and keep in touch with Quantum Global?

We publish news, updates as well as our latest job openings via our company website and through social media, in particular LinkedIn. At the same time, we strongly believe in the importance of physical meetings and take the time necessary to ensure that we meet final candidates face-to-face to allow them to get a true sense of what Quantum Global’s culture is.
