We believe the key to addressing Africa’s development challenges is creating sustainable economic growth – and that this is best achieved by responsible investing in sectors with a comparative advantage. This will foster higher-wage jobs, create more formal employment opportunities, and increase local tax receipts (as well as contributing to sustainable economic growth).
Our Theory of Change focuses on responsible investing in production, processing and trade capacity in key sectors of comparative advantage, and has an emphasis on investments into underbanked sectors, value-add firms and firms managing higher E&S risks.
We have developed an Impact Scoring System which tracks the impact of each of its investments using the Sustainable Development Goals and our own metrics. We also produce tailored impact reports for investors with bespoke impact metrics.
