Africa is currently in a complex environment that has a myriad number of emerging markets. It has become apparent that investment is no longer a sustainable and viable solution if it is not combined with tailor-made risk mitigation tools that are associated with adequate partners and synergies to help optimize returns while limiting downsize for investors and stakeholders.

With 20 years of experience in Africa, closing deals in 26 countries. Ubuntu Capitals’s team has used its experience to propose Financial Engineering Solutions that are adapted to the clients, partners and investors needs to ensure a win-win scenario to secure sustainable and substantial returns for shareholders and stakeholders.

Ubuntu Capital also provides advisory services and co-investment opportunities to create synergies between local and international partners. These synergies are based on value added reviews of financial capabilities, local industry expertise, culture alignment and market reputation. With 20 years in investment and consortium engineering in Africa, we have worked with corporates and investors from around the world. The aim is to pivot this knowledge of local and global landscapes in our dealings as our experience in the field has taught us invaluable lessons and skills.

Optimization of Social and Financial Returns

Statistics indicate the initiatives of high financial returns in emerging markets particularly Africa are mostly likely prone to consider a social return. Ubuntu Capital is working with a number of leading global and regional firms jointly as a project investment advisor and co-investor in the Project Ecosystem. By designing tailor-made blended finance solutions which combine commercial financing, development funding, impact investing, philanthropy funding and corporate CSR, Ubuntu Capital has been able to vastly enhance project ecosystems.

Ubuntu has modelled a unique set of skills and expertise that go beyond building sustainable investment projects but actually helps clients build sustainable ecosystems around the company and its projects.

Ubuntu Capital has combined a mix of advisory and co-investment strategies around new approaches and concepts that promote “Equitable Investment”. Equitable Investment is where funds are not just deployed to maximize a project’s financial returns but they are rather deployed around the project’s ecosystem. This in turn helps to multiply sources of return, which will maximize social return in the instance of investment and capacity building that is purposely built to strengthen a local supply chain, consumer value chain or community empowerment through entrepreneurship promotion. It extends to partner mobilization for investment in commercially viable, basic community infrastructure and health services.

The famous adage says that “It takes a village to raise a child” the same could be said that in Africa it takes a village to grow and sustain a business, the only difference being that the village is actually an ecosystem.
