Our approach to investment is guided by the philosophy of Africapitalism, which is the private sector’s commitment to Africa’s development through long term investments that create economic prosperity and social wealth.
We are addressing Africa’s infrastructure deficit by mobilising global capital and allocating it to sectors that will power Africa to prosperity. Strong economic fundamentals and technological innovation have enabled us to build one of the largest pan-African banking networks, providing commercial and investment banking, asset management, and insurance services across the continent.
Africa is home to over a billion people, with nearly 600 million lacking access to reliable electricity. The supply of consistent, affordable energy is critical to the economic and social advancement of Africa. To play our part in bringing power to our continent, we have invested in the power sector and as the leading private sector investor in the US Government’s Power Africa Initiative, we are committed to lighting up more homes, businesses, hospitals, and schools across Africa.
Energy companies are rethinking and refining traditional strategies for doing business in the sector. With interests in upstream, midstream, downstream and gas-to-power, we are improving lives and transforming the continent one community at a time, and by prioritising the welfare of our host communities, we are creating a legacy that speaks to impact, respect and inclusiveness.
By 2040, Africa’s urban population is projected to reach one billion. An existing shortage of residential and commercial properties, intensified by rapid urbanisation and growing incomes, is increasing the demand for real estate. We are well-positioned to take advantage of these unfolding opportunities through our investment in property development and facility management services.
Africa is the world’s youngest continent and our huge population is both an opportunity and a challenge. To ensure a healthy population and workforce now and in the future, Africa must prioritise the provision of reliable and accessible healthcare. Our investment in world-class health facilities, equipment, and services, meets this need and enables access to quality, affordable healthcare.
