The Africa Lions Equity Fund: Launched in June 2009, the Fund is a daily liquidity Luxembourg UCITS regulated fund that Invests in listed equities across the entire African continent. The Fund is a Pan-African long only equity fund that invests in only the consumer related sectors in 14 major African listed markets. Given the bottom up analysis approach we adopt, the fund has majority holdings in mid and small cap stocks, which reflects the diversified nature of the current African market. We manage similar Pan-Africa long only equity mandates in separate accounts as well. The successful African markets, as in Asia, are leading the industrialization of the region. At Silk Invest we believe that this new generation of nations will become the future lions. Our focus in these dominant markets is to invest in the stocks which will both outperform their local peers and become true leaders in their field.

The Silk Invest Frontier Strategy invests in listed equities in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), Sub Saharan Africa (SSA) and Southern Asia (Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Vietnam). The Silk Invest Frontier Strategy has a consumer focused orientation and is unconstrained (benchmark agnostic). The stocks we choose capture the upside of economic development in these countries and we strongly believe in the consumer opportunity as an attractive and long-term investment theme.
