African Century is an operating investment company that has developed a portfolio of investments in sub-Saharan Africa, principally in East and Southern Africa.

We invest in sectors benefiting from GDP growth, increasing consumer demand and the rapid advance of urbanisation. We create value for our investors by applying our capital and management to develop and grow substantial, high quality businesses; we create value for our stakeholder communities by operating in a socially and environmentally responsible way, with the intention of creating lasting employment and, above all, by supporting the development of local skills and infrastructure. Central to our approach is the firm belief in the role of capitalism in addressing the long term improvements in living standards across the continent.
