A tailored and dynamic approach to investing in Africa.
Altica’s sovereign and global macro framework is integrated across the firm’s investment strategies. In fixed income, the emphasis is on assessing economic resilience, creditworthiness and identifying vulnerabilities. In private credit, our sovereign analysis jointly reinforces an investment case with respect to country selection. At a corporate level, our stress and scenario testing enables us to analyse sensitivities to macro factors, and to implement a hedging programme accordingly.
In most African countries, the middle-market is the largest contributor to GDP and employment, where private-sector funded lending can complement traditional banks.
Altica Credit aims to arrange flexible financing packages for middle-market companies, provide the capital and develop a close partnership with management. Our structures provide investors with access to attractive returns and more control.
Focus sectors: agribusiness, energy and climate, financial services, healthcare, import substitution, media and technology.
Multi-layer Due Diligence
Risk Assesment & Mitigation
Global investors are under-allocated to African markets, yet higher yields and Sharpe ratios offer substantial compensation for taking risk, particularly relative to mainstream emerging and developed markets.
We see compelling structural opportunities in the world’s 'next generation' of emerging markets - a heterogenous set of economies with distinctive growth prospects, macro policies, political systems and financial cycles.
To capture the ‘alpha story’, we differentiate between improving countries with the potential for positive catalysts vs those which are deteriorating and vulnerable. Our strategy focuses on identifying economic resilience, momentum and secular trends; as well as disequilibrium and dispersion across capital markets.
Focus: African sovereign and corporate credit.
