The first local currency equity-based infrastructure fund in Nigeria
We manage multiple naira-denominated, equity-based infrastructure funds in Nigeria.
We invest in sustainable carbon+ businesses
Our funds mobilise capital from public and private sources, to invest in sustainable carbon+ businesses that in turn create, improve or expand infrastructural development in sub-Saharan Africa.
We deploy long-term capital into impactful infrastructure businesses that are mainly owned, managed or operated by credible private sector businesses in exchange for equity. We also take strong governance positions in these investments to ensure efficient delivery and close adherence to best-in-class ESG principles.
