PORTFOLIO

AN IMAGINATIVE AND BALANCED PORTFOLIO

Our focus is on high-growth, emerging market opportunities in South Africa and the rest of Sub-Saharan Africa.

We have partnered with companies that are at the forefront of digital disruption as well as founder-run or family-owned businesses that have been refining their offering for decades. What unifies the companies we invest in is the commitment of their management teams to growing companies that last.

We seek exposure to regional and global growth prospects through regional expansion strategies within our portfolio companies, as well as direct investments selectively into other countries.

For an attractive risk-adjusted return, we blend our investment types (growth equity, buy-and-build, buyouts) and risk/return profiles (high growth opportunities with more defensive industries) and deploy world-class structuring practices to tap upside whilst protecting downside.

Our investment focus is framed by investment “themes” within which we spotlight specific sectors:

All Connected / Industry 4.0

IoT / Tech / ICT

Education is the Most Powerful Weapon

Schools / Edutech

Data is the New Gold

Big Data / Predictive Analytics

In Sickness and in Health

Healthcare / Food / Agribusiness / Medtech

There is no Planet B

Green Solutions / Green Alternatives

Investment Criteria

We work with established companies in our investment focus areas that have a convincing growth thesis, clear focus and a compelling competitive advantage. In particular, we partner with owner-managed businesses that are approaching a new critical juncture and preparing to scale up.
