Ethos invests on behalf of a wide range of organisations across the globe. These investors, known as Limited Partners (“LPs”) comprise leading:
- Public and corporate retirement funds
- Sovereign wealth funds
- Family offices and high-net worth individuals
- Development financial institutions (DFIs)
Since Ethos Fund III (1996), all of our Funds incorporate local and international commitments.
The ultimate beneficiaries of Ethos' investment programmes are millions of current and future policyholders and pensioners.
We never lose sight of the fact that we are managing other people’s money. By growing the businesses in which we invest, Ethos consistently strives to achieve the best long-term risk-adjusted returns.
Investors choose to partner with Ethos because we are the leading firm in South Africa and provide investors with access to a dynamic private equity environment with emerging market growth characteristics.
Furthermore, investors are looking beyond the developed markets for pockets of growth and have identified South Africa as an investment opportunity. Investors also recognise South Africa's potential as a gateway into sub-Saharan Africa; our investors believe that Ethos has the expertise to deliver on these prospects.
Keeping investors informed
Ethos provides our investors with world-class reporting, enabling a continuous flow of information, financial reports, face-to-face presentations and regular emails and conference calls to keep LPs up-to-date with new developments at Ethos and its portfolio companies.
Prospective and existing investors with any enquiries should contact Rohan Dyer, Head of Investor Relations.
