We seek to make investments in the following sectors: 

Retail (food and beverage and logistics)
Agro-industries (agro-input providers and agro-processing)
Real Estate (retail and commercial)
Financial Services
Oil and Gas

Through our investment process, Bambili Group focuses on identifying, developing relationships with, and eventually partnering with the leading managers and management teams in the various sectors that we have identified as potentially attractive for investment.

These investments are often made in the context of privatization, corporate divestitures  and restructurings, partnerships with owner-operators and special situations.


The sale and privatization of state-owned companies and assets can present an opportunity for investment in high value businesses with the potential for significant improvement to management structure and operations.

Corporate divestitures and restructurings

The restructuring or disposition of a division or subsidiary by a large company may result in an opportunity to invest in a strong operating platform at an attractive valuation. Bambili has made previous investments in such circumstances.

Special situations

We seek to use our knowledge of the market and our industry contacts to secure attractive investment opportunities in other special situations, including privatizations and specialty financings where local sponsors seek to involve an experienced, validating co-investor.

Partnerships with owner-operators

Bambili has been the preferred partner to owner-operators in numerous investments, in many cases making minority investments and significantly increasing the value of the businesses through introductions to customers, management team members and directors.

The Bambili Group is well positioned to take advantage of investment opportunities.

We are structured as an evergreen investment holding company, not as a typical close-ended private equity fund.

We have an open-ended investment time horizon and no pre-defined exit requirements.

We are a pan-African investment-focused group, run by qualified African professionals.
