We are a highly active partner seeking to fundamentally transform
the businesses we own and create true long-term value.
This is rooted in the industrial approach that has historically
characterised our investment activity since inception.
-Controlling investments in leveraged buyouts.
We acquire majority stakes in medium to large African companies who are leading brands in their market. We invest in five core sectors and are particularly focused on consolidating sectors and on markets where growth can be sustained through economic and financial market cycles. We harness our deep industry connections to deliver an ambitious and truly transformative approach. Our approach encompasses every aspect of our investments: consolidation, market position, growth, product and service development and beyond. Ultimately, we always seek to build excellent companies into sector leaders that can attract a strong premium on exit. An approach and attitude that often sets FADAS apart from others.
-To connect investors to the best opportunities, we leverage our highly influential network across Africa. Our local and global footprint gives management teams powerful access to the best experts and markets in our sectors.
Our investment strategy is founded on strong relationships with investors and management teams. Establishing trust, transparency and genuine hip with management teams ensures total alignment of interest and strong performance incentives.
The combined in-depth knowledge of our  and sector experts ensures maximum returns and impact. By identifying African companies with international growth potential, and capitalising on market growth and consolidation, we build better businesses with significant strategic value for future.
-Building better businesses for everyone
We aim to increase the profitability and long-term strategic value of the businesses we own, while considering environmental, social and governance impacts. In turn this secures superior valuations across financial market cycles when we exit an investment.
How? We invest in R&D, marketing, new facilities and acquisitions, to support the business’ brand development, geographic expansion, new product development and capacity expansion. The proceeds from cost savings and disposals made under FADAS’s ownership are systematically reinvested in the company to drive growth.
