Our Perspective

Why this region?

From a pure investment standpoint, Africa has the most of the world's fastest growing economies, driven by demographics, by urbanization and resource demand. It is also the least developed continent and the one where capital is most scarce. Africa is a market where investors really truly experience the value private capital creates and its lasting impact.

The right approach

Judgement calls and context is important because of the nature of the environment where there are more gaps in information so you need to be much more of a first principle investor, organising and interpreting information with the right context not simply using the investment tools in a vacuum.

Making a difference

To have a lasting impact in Africa we must have an entrepreneurial mindset. As a starting point, we believe investors must focus on identifying the challenges facing the region. This is where the opportunity lies. Then building a business or corporate structure around it.

At Seavest we are problem solvers first and foremost, we then overlay our thought process with our investment skills. You have to be prepared to think creatively, make observations about the environment you are operating in and be able to come up with the ideas that transform into strong business.
