Vital Capital Fund is a $350 million private equity fund that invests in opportunities which simultaneously enhance the quality of life of communities in rapidly developing nations, primarily in Sub-Saharan Africa, while also delivering attractive financial returns for investors. Sub-Saharan Africa’s growth over the past decade has been extensively chronicled. A litany of reports, articles and studies tout the impressive developments enabled by a significantly more stable political and economic landscape and an increasingly successful conversion of natural resources into important national assets and critical infrastructure. Vital’s seasoned team has over 30 years of successful ‘on-the-ground’ experience in Africa across a wide range of industries.

Vital Capital Fund invites applicants to propose business ventures that could present future investment opportunities for the Fund.

Investment interest

Vital Capital Fund’s primary investment interest is the development of infrastructure. Vital broadens its investment prospects by focusing on urban, large-scale, community-integrated housing concepts and initiating fully integrated agro-industrial solutions, as well as giving particular emphasis to education and healthcare. In addition to these important sectors, the fund also seeks to invest in other large-scale infrastructure projects of national importance. This intersection of need, opportunity and experience creates enormous potential for Vital to ‘Invest for Impact’: simultaneously providing tangible improvements in the quality of life of local populations while providing investors with attractive financial returns.
