DPI seeks to bring the experience, skill set, knowledge and local network it possesses to bear for our portfolio companies.
DPI has a dedicated Portfolio Management team and works closely with management teams throughout the investment cycle.
We do this by assisting management in functional areas, including African expansion, operational excellence programmes, mergers and acquisitions, ESG and management information systems.
We believe there is a strong correlation between ESG and high returns.
We assist our portfolio companies to implement high standards of environmental, social and governance practices to create value and drive sustainable economic development.
