#A Unique Partnership
African Alliance Asset Management and Tshikululu Social Investments have partnered to bring together decades of experience in Financial and Social Impact expertise. Both companies were founded by Africans in Africa. The focus of the Fund’s investments will be on delivering sound financial returns and measurable impact.
African Alliance Asset Management is one of the longest standing and most experienced fund managers in sub-Saharan Africa, with a 25 year track record of investing across the continent. We have built a substantial infrastructure in terms of offices and professional teams to meet the investment needs of our clients who include national governments, municipalities, parastatals, NGOs, retirement funds, medium- to large-sized public and private companies and individuals. We offer a range of collective investment schemes as well as discretionary management, structuring and advisory services.
In many instances African Alliance’s role in Africa has been ground-breaking and we have gained a reputation for high levels of skill, innovation, delivery, consistency and integrity. African Alliance has built financial markets where none previously existed, in the areas of domestic private equity and venture capital funds, primary bond issues, unit trusts, asset management, corporate finance and treasury.
As part of the broader African Alliance Group of Companies we have access to substantial deal origination capability and expertise, which is all the more important given the increasing prevalence of private market opportunities across the markets in which we operate.
Tshikululu Social Investments is a leading social investment fund manager and advisor, working with social investors and partners to design and implement high-impact social investment solutions. We define social investment as any financial commitment – from grant making to impact investing – that seeks to drive and measure social impact.
Over the past 22 years, we have built up deep expertise and understanding in how social impact happens, as well as how to measure it effectively. Our social impact work spans the environment, livelihoods, education and health sectors, in both urban and rural settings. Our corporate clients work in a variety of industries, including mining, financial services, renewable energy, property development, banking, insurance, healthcare and logistics. Our service offering is holistic and unique, offering end-to-end fund management and advisory services underpinned by a deep and hands-on understanding of the complexities of development and social change.
We maximise the power of social investment to create a world where everyone has the opportunity to thrive.
