Private Equity

Enko Africa Private Equity Fund (EAPEF) is a private equity fund established for the purpose of investing in growth companies in Africa across a broad range of economic sectors. It successfully reached a US$48.25 million first closing in April 2014 and is currently fundraising for its final close in 2015.

Opportunity

Africa presents a high growth potential with seven of the ten fastest growing economies in the next three years being in Africa. With its natural resources reserves, large consumer market, agricultural potential, increased investments and strong demography, Africa is an attractive investment destination. Its capital markets yet remain underdeveloped and EAPEF sees substantial merit in assisting its portfolio companies towards a listing on an adequate African stock exchange, thereby deepening the capital markets while offering a mutually-beneficial exit route.
