Founded in 2013, 54 Capital is an Africa-focused asset manager with an agile deal-by-deal strategy providing investors with access to direct deal flow.
We invest in companies that match Africa’s growth drivers, sector priorities and most importantly leverage our experience in creating market leaders. We adopt an on-the-ground approach and are actively involved in creating, implementing and monitoring our value creation plan.
At 54 Capital, we see ESG as a source of long-term value creation. We invest with the intention to generate measurable environmental and social impact and act in a sustainable and responsible manner every day.
Barriers to entry are high in Africa. This typically requires a significant local presence to effectively manage any asset.
Our priority is to build first-class expertise and scale in a small number of countries with strong growth potential, good governance and a favorable investment environment.
Before considering a country, we make sure at least one member of our team knows it well. It also has to be a place where we can rely on a solid and established network of local partners.
