The art of creating value

The sign of a true master is their ability to create the exceptional in any circumstance.

Over the past 25 years, Ethos Private Equity has crafted deals resulting in superior returns for our investors; through times of economic boom, financial downturn and political uncertainty.

It is our innovative thinking, inventive approach and ability to execute transactions that sets us apart. At Ethos we believe in patience, and that each and every detail should be thought through and deeply considered in its own right, and then skilfully used to create an outstanding investment. Our reputation for value creation has made us the partner of choice for successful management teams exploring corporate change and growth.

We never lose sight of the fact that we are managing other peoples’ money, and consistently strive to achieve the best long-term, risk adjusted returns through the growth of the investments we have made on their behalf.

Little wonder then that we’ve been ranked as the top private equity firm in South Africa for the last 10 years in the PricewaterhouseCoopersStrategic Banking Survey.

Ethos believes its long-term success is due to this unique set of competencies developed over its history, which have been individually refined and collectively combined, enabling us to identify and extract value where others can’t; to transform a yellow spot into the sun – a true masterpiece.
