All applications are registered and assigned to an Investment officer with relevant expertise in the required field.

We seek Returns on investment commensurate with risk. Applications that meet our initial screening criteria are processed further at this stage. Typically, appraisal activities include meetings with promoters; information gathering, investment analysis and a go / no-go decision by the executive investment committee.

Due Diligence
At this stage, detailed pre-investment due diligence is carried out. Board Investment Committee presentations are made and a decision to invest is reached.

If a Board Investment Committee approval is obtained, a Letter of Intent shall be issued. All other legal and financial documents must be finalised and financing options agreed on before disbursement.

Our driving philosophy is to partner with our clients. Typically, this would entail at the minimum, a board position and where required, management advisory services.

We prefer investment opportunities that offer a three-to-five-year exit window.
