About Us

The name Salt Capital symbolises the nature of how we operate – we invest capital to add depth, flavour and zest. Since 2012, Salt Capital has focused on identifying, investing and managing mid-market private equity investments in order to capitalise on the growth potential of Africa. Our collaborative partnership approach with African business owners, means that our investments continually benefit from our ability and experience to formulate and deliver differentiated growth strategies.

More importantly, we measure our success not only by reference to the monetary returns we generate for our investors, but also in terms of the overall positive impact our investments have on the region.

Salt Capital operates in the knowledge that our blend of specialist expertise and diverse experience in the region, favourably benefits both our investee companies and investment partners, and that our unique position in the market offers a strong investment case for prospective investors seeking to gain access to superior returns in this part of the world.

Salt Capital was founded in 2012 with the “Ripple Effect” as the identity, image and brand associated with the individuals owning the business
