SDG Frontier Fund

Africinvest Financial Investment Vehicle (“FIVE” or the “Fund”, previously called AfricInvest Financial Sector Holding) is an evergreen investment fund focusing on financial inclusion in Africa that was launched in 2017. The initial strategy focusing on established African mid-size banks, insurers and Non-Banking Financial Institutions has further evolved with the market to now also include fintech companies.

The main particularity and innovation of this Fund is its evergreen character, i.e. no initially fixed end date. The rationale is that more time is needed to get the most out of investments in the financial sector (compared to most other sectors). For instance, the process to obtain a banking license from local Central Banks can be very long. Hence the objective to bring the average holding period with this evergreen structure to 7 to 8 years compared to the often too short 4 years on average with a closed-end fund. Given the evergreen nature of the project, special attention was given in the structuring of the project to :

  • Creation of sufficient liquidity/exit opportunities for investors.
  • Definition of a fair incentive scheme ensuring alignment of interest between investors and fund manager.

Development impacts

  • Local economic growth

    Provision of additional mid to long-term capital to financial institutions which will a.o. enable them to grow their activities and keep up with increasing capital adequacy ratios. This aspect is further reinforced by the fact that there are currently not a lot of equity providers for smaller financial institutions in Sub-Saharan Africa.

    Job creation and generation of fiscal revenues.

    Fintechs allow underserved populations to access services (bank services, insurances, remittance services, leasing, etc.), improving quality of life at lower costs and efforts.

  • Private sector consolidation/innovation

    FIVE is the first and only evergreen fund focusing on the financial sector in Africa, capable of accompanying an investee for longer than classic closed-end vehicles. ·

    Now partly focussing on fintechs, FIVE will support the private sector in taking advantage and further developing the digital revolution which allows for simplified, faster, more cost-efficient and numerous transactions and operations.

    Institution building and company development of the financial institutions FIVE invests in. The concrete support by the Manager can materialise in many different ways (governance, recruitment, training, process/IT upgrades, etc.).

  • Financial inclusion

    Increasing the quantity and quality of financial services offered to the local population and businesses.

    Investing in fintechs, thanks to the increasing mobile and internet penetration, will help make basic financial services, which normally require travel to a certain location, accessible to unserved/remote populations who cannot afford such a trip or the time associated with such an operation. Also, the lower operational costs associated with fintechs allow the service provider to reduce its tariffs and ask for fewer guarantees.

E&S Impact

Current situation

The fund has a comprehensive Environmental and Social Management System (ESMS), built over time with the input of several Development Financial Institutions. It ensures that E&S risks are assessed and mitigated at all steps of the investment process. It is managed by a professional team and implemented via a set of dedicated E&S tools. As such, no E&S improvements are required.
