"We are developing the African infrastructure asset class through strong partnerships, specialist expertise, high-quality investments, and impressive results. By delivering successful projects we are supporting the growth of a sustainable Africa for better livelihoods today and for the generations to come."
With the mandate of a 12-year fund (extendable), we take a long-term perspective on our investments. We invest equity capital and occasionally mezzanine instruments in West African infrastructure assets for a significant minority stake. Our investments are tailored to meet the specific requirements of the projects, and our investors. The criteria we seek includes a provision of essential services to the community, long-term capital growth, the opportunity to obtain a dominant market position, and the potential to increase returns on equity.
We support infrastructure projects at an early development stage, working alongside sponsors from project conception through to construction. Leveraging our in-house industry and technical experts, we selectively offer project development capital prior to financial close for chosen projects in addition to financial structuring support to enhance the bankability of projects.
Delivering an optimal energy mix for grid-connected and commercial/industrial power requirements while incorporating distributed energy solutions for broad-reaching access.
Investing in infrastructure that is emissions mitigative and adaptive to climate change.
Opening markets, trade routes and scale for African products and services, leveraging on West Africa as a gateway.
Urban renewal for nodes of burgeoning population, consumption, and employment, as the major centres of economic activity.
The power of technology to scale products and services such as education, health, agriculture, logistics and much more, is underpinned by robust digital infrastructure.
Innovative capital solutions addressing long-term investment perspectives, local currency solutions, and risk & return allocation will be crucial to mobilizing increasing levels of capital into African Infrastructure.
