Helios Private Equity

Building market leaders in core economic sectors

Helios Private Equity follows a highly flexible 'first principles' investment approach, applying developed world investment tools in Africa. Helios focuses on acquiring and/or building high potential platform companies in core economic sectors, with an emphasis on portfolio operations as a driver of value.

Africa-specific factors, including economic liberalization, increasing technology-driven productivity, demographic dynamics and urbanization are driving general and secular growth and creating attractive investment opportunities on the continent.

While Helios invests opportunistically, it focuses its efforts on those sectors that are most closely geared to these themes. The following are Helios' core investment sectors:

  • Financial Services and Technology
  • Digital Infrastructure
  • Tech-Enabled Business Services
  • Consumer Non-Discretionary
