Growth is a central tenet of Ethos' strategic investment ambition. We take a long-term perspective and invest in thesis-driven growth investments where we believe we can make a difference.
A Partnership Approach
We create value by actively transforming the strategy, operations and finances of investee businesses, making them "best-in-class".
We achieve this by partnering with strong management teams (and in some instances like-minded co-investors) with proven experience in driving growth. This partnership model is the crux of our investment thesis.
We specialise in control acquisitions of:
- Medium-to-large companies in South Africa, and selectively in sub-Saharan Africa, that involve meaningful equity participation by management; and
- Good quality growth opportunities.
Our proven record of understanding businesses and effecting meaningful operational and strategic change has built Ethos' reputation as a constructive, valued equity partner.
Ultimately, we build better businesses.
