We welcome discussing opportunities to work with qualified investors to manage private equity and trade finance investments, delivered through bespoke managed accounts or funds. We assess all of our investments for financial return prospects and ESG quality and risks and seek to improve ESG outcomes during our ownership. We have delivered this strategy through a $140m bespoke portfolio for a major UK pension fund client over the past five years.
Depending on client preferences, we will also invest in "hard impact", seeking sustainable investments with high expected impact outcomes. This is where we cut our teeth investing and building businesses in Africa, by founding and growing EFTA (efta.co.tz), an SME equipment leasing business in Tanzania, focused on agriculture and creating jobs and by co-founding LAFCo (www.lendingforafricanfarming.com/), an SME agriculture-focused trade finance company.
