    Equity fund focusing on value-add infrastructure assets (mainly construction and growth assets) in Africa, with a focus on sub-Saharan Africa.

    The investment team targets both new and existing assets and intends to apply for the latter a buy and build strategy that consists of acquiring controlling stakes in mature operational assets and then developing and optimising them further. The investment team targets essential African infrastructure assets in the mobility and logistics, power and energy transition (specifically renewable energy), as well as digital sectors across mainly in sub-Saharan countries.

    Environmental aspects

    The fund will be required to have an environmental and social policy and the appropriate management systems in place so as to comply with the social requirements of the Bank. The assessment of the environmental, climate and social impacts and risks will be part of the standard due diligence process that the fund will have to carry out for each portfolio company and any underlying investment and, thereby ensuring that the portfolio and these investments are in compliance with national law and in line with the principles and standards of relevant EU environmental legislation as well as the EIB's Environmental and Social Standards.

    The EIB will require the fund manager to take all requisite measures to ensure that contracts for implementation of the projects financed by the fund will be tendered in line with the Bank's Guide to Procurement.
