Podcast: A majority ownership strategy for value creation in Africa

According to the 2021 African Private Equity Industry Survey, the outlook for private investment in Africa is positive. About 9 in 10 LPs surveyed say they plan to maintain or increase their allocation to Africa-focused private equity funds over the next three years. And many of those LPs believe in the potential for positive social impact and strong financial returns by investing in Africa.

In this episode of the PE Talks Africa podcast, we catch up with Alexis Caude, Managing Partner at Adenia Partners, to discuss the exits landscape in African private equity.

From the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on exiting investments and limited IPO opportunities in Africa to the sale of Mauvilac, the Mauritian paint company, to AkzoNobel, Alexis Caude talks about Adenia’s majority ownership strategy for investing in Africa, and why a strong management team makes all the difference in a company.
