Mainbridge’s Private Equity business is focused on investing in growth companies across Africa and international companies with operations or whose business “impacts” the African continent. We invest in exceptional and innovative, industry leaders across the continent, led by excellent and experienced management teams. As growth investors, our value lies in our ability to underwrite the growth trajectory of our portfolio companies, drawing on decades of experience, local knowledge and strategic value-add capabilities drawn from group-wide resources and opportunities.
Mainbridge is committed to listing a series of fixed income securities in Frankfurt, Vienna and over time, the London Specialist Fund Markets, targeting €10 Billion over the next 5 years.
Our initial offering is a Frankfurt-Listed USD$800 Million Bond (ISIN:GB00BLCXWN03) that is targeting liquid fixed income investors. The Bonds will be invested in large-scale African Infrastructure-related projects with potential equity uplifts.
In line with its core strategic commitment to the growth of the Africa Infrastructure landscape, Mainbridge is creating a Mainbridge Africa Core Infrastructure Fund which will commence as an initial USD$1 Billion active equity fund focused on Sub-Sahara development oriented Infrastructure. Mainbridge will be a significant sponsor with a commitment of USD$400 Million into the Fund.
The Fund will be a 10 year closed-end Limited Partnership, targeting 6% structured real yield and 18% total return based upon a Balanced portfolio across sector and country risk. Seed assets in energy, transport, agriculture and mining have already been identified and will be qualified for investment in Q2 of 2023.
Mainbridge expects to raise further (equity and credit) funds and grow Assets Under Management to over USD$30 Billion within 5 years (sequentially as follows: USD$1 bn, USD$2 bn, USD$3 bn, USD$5 bn, USD$7.5 bn, USD$12.5 bn).
Mainbridge is in the process of creating Non-Regulated Credit Lending Business that will provide credit against third party collateral instruments via Facility Agreements, which the Borrower vests the underlying collateral under the control of Mainbridge.
Mainbridge is in the process of creating a Captive Insurance Division through the capitalisation of a subsidiary of a highly profiled and regulated insurer. Over time, the Protected cell company is leveraged with retained earnings and further market borrowings.
The Business will be a low risk venture as bonds are fully subscribed and 90% of retained risk is pushed down to re-insurers.
