Building better businesses has been Ethos' purpose for 33 years.
We apply this philosophy to ourselves as much as we do to our investments.
Accordingly, we have been investing significantly in our franchise over the past five years to pursue a vision to grow Ethos from being the leading private equity manager in South Africa to become the leading Alternative Asset manager in sub-Saharan Africa.
To achieve this vision we are launching a number of new alternative asset products into the South African & sub-Saharan market over the forthcoming years.
In parallel, we have raised capital from the listed market (to supplement our traditional LP investor base). We believe this listed vehicle – Ethos Capital - provides investors with a unique opportunity to invest (and co-invest) into Ethos Funds. In turn, Ethos Capital will give stockholders access to a diverse portfolio of unlisted assets actively managed by Ethos.
In September 2017, this vision was further endorsed by a strategic investment into the Group by leading South African institutions: RMI Investment Managers (‘RMI’) and Royal Investment Managers (‘RIM’).
We believe that our vision is an appropriate strategy for sustained success and these new products will form the cornerstone of our Alternative Assets ambition.
