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 rather than just a cost. 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.
