Working directly with policy-makers, C-Suites leadership teams and industry practitioners – we curate and pull together touchpoints to create views our clients can leverage to activate and augment their brand communication, corporate strategy and individual campaigns.

We are global citizens, with HQ in London; and offices in Lagos, Accra, Kigali, Nairobi and Johannesburg. We also have representative offices in New York, and Singapore.


SHAPING THE DEBATE
We are at the fore of private markets opportunities in Africa, shaping the debate on the future of institutional investment strategies, traditional and alternative asset classes. Via Africonomie LIVE, we curate discussions and influenced policies, regulations and practitioner practice in the investment funds and asset management industry.

PARTNERSHIPS THAT ADD VALUE
We foster and manage partnerships that get things done. We draw on the diverse resources of our ecosystems to accomplish things that are challenging, or might appear daunting. Our clients are never alone in any African country they have investment exposure or business operations. We are a strong, unifying force in gathering the complementary skills, capital and insight that help our clients to tackle complex investment and business processes.

ACCESSING AFRICA
Majority of institutions that want to invest in Africa lack the knowledge on how to access the investment deal flow in Africa, evaluate different opportunities owing to opacity of data, execute transactions, maintain good corporate governance, protect against political and expropriation risks.
 
 
Our Strategic Pillars

Our business processes are built on three interconnected ideologies that underpin innovation and sustainable growth.

Focus on addressing the principal blocks to capital owners with strong appetite to build investment portfolios in alternative assets. It seeks to address lack of in-house experience at boards and trustees levels, whilst working with the industry to develop investment vehicles that offer the diversified and optimum risk–adjusted returns.
