Our reputation for integrity is one of our most important assets. We hold ourselves to standards that not only meet those required by the laws and regulations that apply to us, but also to our principles, which are rooted in exceeding our clients’ expectations.

Subject to rigorous due diligence processes, Nurture typically makes investments in transactions that have the following characteristics:

  • Operations in business sectors with high growth potential;
  • Companies that have a strong and sustainable competitive advantage with significant potential for growth through consolidation or accessing new markets; and
  • Like-minded and aligned stakeholders.

For private equity transactions, Nurture aims to acquire controlling stake or influential minority positions in SMEs poised for growth. Investment sourcing is driven using a thematic approach, focused on proactively identifying investment opportunities in sectors that are congruent with Nurture’s strategic thrust.

For alternative investments, the possibilities are endless. Nurture identifies opportunities that address or pre-empt the pain points of investors and entities seeking capital and structures investment solutions that meet the needs of both groups. We work to mitigate risks and maximize rewards.

Our investment partners include family offices and high net worth individuals in the United Kingdom, United States of America, Europe, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Southern Africa. At a portfolio company level, Nurture’s funding providers include institutions such as Afreximbank, FSD Africa (an arm of the UK government), ZADT (funded by the EU), National Social Security Authority of Zimbabwe, Old Mutual Investments Group Zimbabwe, Zimnat, and the African Enterprise Challenge Fund, amongst others.
