Our Journey

Our Journey

After building up 12 years of specialist investment experience in our niche sector, establishing a strong track record over four separate funds, and investing through the global financial crisis of 2008, we are ready to begin the next chapter in our incredible journey.


Established as an alternative investment specialist with a focus on the South African mid-market private equity sector, we initially invested primarily into private equity funds.


After launching our first fund, Ke Nako Fund I, we realised that our resources and extensive network placed us in a unique position to increase co-investments in our portfolios. This attractive addition provides our investors with an opportunity to earn a higher net return than through a traditional private equity fund-of-funds  model.
