The Firm

About Transcentury Global

Transcentury Global has pioneered the private equity industry in many of the markets where we operate. Our journey has been one of innovation and entrepreneurial drive. Finding, growing and monetizing investments is what we do and how we do this matters. We believe in the power of partnership capital to grow sustainable businesses and communities. We are not just investors, we are business builders.

We have developed a purpose-built approach for investing in growth markets. Some of the world’s most demanding institutions have entrusted us to manage capital on their behalf.

We currently manage Ksh 1.2 Billion in assets and are focused on investment strategies across private equity, private credit, impact investing and real estate. By combining deep local reach, a global platform and underwriting standards, with extensive operating capabilities, we generate industry-leading returns and create value in market-leading companies.

Dedicated Team

We have a dedicated team of operating professionals who work hand-in-hand with investment teams to actively drive value creation in partner companies, helping them institutionalize and grow. Environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors are deeply embedded in our investment process, a proven value driver in our partner companies. Responsible investing that enhances financial returns is at the core of our philosophy.

Our Markets

We focus on growth markets characterized by consumption-driven economies, pro-business policies, rapid urbanization, favorable demographics, and growing consumer classes. Our target markets are ultimately select cities within our regions, where economic activity, consumption and entrepreneurial talent are concentrated.

Our Strategy

We invest in emerging consumers and the fast-growing cities where they live. While we target markets with compelling fundamental drivers at the macro level, our core view is that strong returns are generated by the ability to find, build, and exit exceptional companies and assets.

Our mid-market private equity strategies focus on consumer-facing businesses capitalizing on increasing disposable income, lifestyle changes and supply demand gaps. Our other lines of business focus on addressing the needs of consumers and businesses in growing cities in critical areas, such as credit and real estate, as well as healthcare and clean energy, with the intention of achieving strong economic returns and delivering positive social impact.

Our Vision

To be Africa’s World Class Development Finance Institution (DFI) focusing on industrial growth and development as well as having a significant impact on creating jobs and raising household incomes for a profit.

Our Mission

To Catalyze Wealth Creation by investing in opportunities with the potential to create tomorrow’s blue chip companies.
