Who is our customer

Adenia Capital IV will be the fourth fund to be managed by Adenia Partners Ltd. Adenia Capital IV will be a generalist PE fund making control investments in SMEs in underserved PE markets (Indian Ocean and West Africa).

What is our funding objective?

The Fund provides scarce, high risk capital and hands-on support to SMEs in low income countries (including post-conflict countries); as a result of their majority/hands-on approach, Adenia creates impact on employees via job and wealth creation; and on environmental and social (E&S) via active involvement in improving (and driving) the ESG management system of its investee companies.

Why do we fund this investment?

Adenia IV provides an opportunity to back a strong, locally based and experienced fund manager with a proven track record (both financial and developmental) in the SME and smaller corporate segment. Its strategy of majority ownerships allows Adenia to access a unique set of opportunities (virtually no competition from other fund managers; proprietary deal flow) as well as to apply an active/hands-on investment approach as they aim to drive the operational, ESG and exit agendas in portfolio companies. This strategy has proven to be a success in creating value and promoting ESG best practices among portfolio companies.
