Adenia Capital (IV) Parallel LP

Project Description


Adenia Capital IV will be the fourth fund to be managed by Adenia Partners Ltd. Adenia Capital IV will be a generalist PE fund making control investments in SMEs in underserved PE markets (Indian Ocean and West Africa).


The Fund provides scarce, high risk capital and hands-on support to SMEs in low income countries (including post-conflict countries); as a result of their majority/hands-on approach, Adenia creates impact on employees via job and wealth creation; and on environmental and social (E&S) via active involvement in improving (and driving) the ESG management system of its investee companies.


Adenia IV provides an opportunity to back a strong, locally based and experienced fund manager with a proven track record (both financial and developmental) in the SME and smaller corporate segment. Its strategy of majority ownerships allows Adenia to access a unique set of opportunities (virtually no competition from other fund managers; proprietary deal flow) as well as to apply an active/hands-on investment approach as they aim to drive the operational, ESG and exit agendas in portfolio companies. This strategy has proven to be a success in creating value and promoting ESG best practices among portfolio companies.
