Investment focus

African Alliance Private Equity takes varying equity stakes in high-growth businesses with sound management teams.

We do not intervene in the day-to-day management of the business, but require adequate protection mechanisms for our investment. Through transaction structuring and post-investment management, we aim to maximise the value of the business for the benefit of all stakeholders.

We are particularly interested in medium-sized businesses with the following attributes:

  • Export and manufacturing businesses requiring expansion capital to grow operations and international markets
  • Businesses that supply goods and services to core industries driving economies, but that need acquisition, development or buy-out funding
  • Underrated businesses or those operating in out-of-favour industries.

Portfolio companies will need to demonstrate significant upside potential based on strong growth prospects, and display certain criteria, including:

  • Undervalued opportunities
  • Sound financial structure
  • Solid returns
  • Capable management teams
