Private Equity / Responsible Investing

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.

EAPEF’s investment policy is guided by the goal of achieving the financial, economic, social and environmental sustainability of the businesses it invests in.

EAPEF provides support to the vibrant and growing next generation of African entrepreneurs who share the belief that well-run businesses, good corporate governance and best market practices create value for all stakeholders.

EAPEF abides by its environmental and social management system, through which its ESG policy is implemented at every stage in the investment process:

  • Compliance with regulatory requirements and global best practices
  • Vigilance as it continually monitors, identifies and remediates potential environmental, social and governance risks or potential hazards
  • Commitment to communication with and involvement of stakeholders.
