Current & Future updates
“Kingdom Africa Management (KAM) is a pan-African private equity investment firm that manages the Pan-African Investment Partners (PAIP) funds. PAIP was launched in 2003 with a total capital commitment of US$ 123 million. Investments in that fund have been substantially and successfully exited. PAIP II was launched in 2008 and currently has a total capital commitment of US$ 200 million. The fund has been fully invested and is now in a divestment period.
At the same time as managing the PAIP funds, KAM continues to source attractive deals for execution across the African continent. Deals are sourced through its strong and well-established network and research of macro and micro economic trends occurring across Africa. KAM is confident in the continued economic vitality of the African continent and remains committed to investing in that growth.
KAM is currently looking to establish a third Pan-African investment fund giving its accumulated experiences jointly with specialized investment banks in light of the growth expected in Africa.
