The Nigerian and Sub-Saharan economies are experiencing tremendous growth and need substantial foreign direct investment.
Middle Market and start up Nigerian Companies lack capital and do not have the same access to the global investor base that their larger capitalized peers do.
Our goal is to leverage our relationships with owner/operators and total return focused investors; allowing for the flow and sustainable return of capital and returns to both parties.
