Our goal is to promote job and wealth creation in Sub-Saharan Africa, helping businesses access markets and compete fairly with multi-national companies. We bridge the credit gap by deploying capital to strategically important sectors in order to promote economic diversification fuelled by the growth of local companies, resulting in increased exports, import substitution, lower trade deficits, foreign exchange generation and mass employment creation.
Private Credit: Our belief is that attractive investment opportunities lie in the middle-market and that a blend of credit products provide the safest means of accessing them. A critical mass of indigenous companies exists in this space whose growth has been hampered by a lack of available funding and suitable structures.
Fixed Income: Designed to offer an alpha/income-generating portfolio solution to yield-seeking investors. We believe our unique total return strategy, which operates within a hedge fund style framework, is the optimal vehicle to provide investors with exposure to the ‘next generation’ of emerging markets. It is also strongly aligned with our dedication to developing African capital markets.
We believe a strong sovereign risk framework supported by currency and commodity price volatility resilience testing underpins African private and public market investment selection.
