InfraCo Africa has been investing equity at the Financial Close stage of its projects for several years, closing the financing gap or giving confidence to new funders entering at the construction phase, and ensuring that its projects are built and operated as intended: keeping the promises made to partners, local communities and other stakeholders. It can now do more. Investing into innovative infrastructure-related businesses that need support to scale-up, pilot new products or enter new markets and so ultimately demonstrate the commercial viability of planned growth.
Through its investment arm, InfraCo Africa will support those businesses that enable sub-Saharan Africa’s economies to emerge from the COVID-19 crisis in a stronger position. With a focus on developing local capital markets, generating more local jobs, broadening and deepening local supply chains and capabilities, whilst always championing green growth that supports climate resilience and drives down carbon emissions. Safeguarding workforces, customers, suppliers and partners is also a critical consideration when selecting investments: we will prioritise investments that seek to engage and empower women and those with disabilities.
InfraCo Africa’s first investment was signed in 2020 and it anticipates closing a further two by mid-2021. If you have an investment opportunity for us, you can find out more on our working together page.
