What We Do
Our Focus Areas
Our investments focus on major challenge areas for Africa and Africans, including:
Investing in Food Technology, Investing in growth
Food Security anchors the Anza thesis and is focussed on:
Reliable supply of food of sufficient quantity and quality.
Households have adequate resources to obtain appropriate food.
Food is nutritious and can be adequately metabolised and used by the body.
Permanent and durable access to food.
Investing in CleanTech, Investing in Growth
Using a whole value chain approach, the focus is to invest in small and medium sized enterprises, including businesses owned by women and youth, that can pivot from coal and other carbon intensive sectors, to the green economy; emphasis is on transitioning Africa to the green industry, in particular green energy and on unlocking growth through patient and flexible finance.
An investment thesis for Africa’s Just Energy Transition, which will mobilise catalytic climate finance in order to:
Achieve Climate Goals
Support African countries in achieving ambitious climate goals, including the phase-out of fossil fuel energy production, aligned with the global 1.5-2 degree target.
Creates and preserves high-quality job opportunities, empowering South Africans with secure employment prospects and a brighter future.
Foster sustainable growth for South Africans by building adaptive capacity in coal-affected communities, empowering them to navigate the transition effectively.
Achieve Net Zero Emissions
Net zero emissions across investors’ assets by 2050 or sooner: driving sustainability, combating climate change effectively.
Investing in Digital Infrastructure, Investing in Growth
There are significant opportunities for digital infrastructure start-ups, in particular – entrepreneurs that create multi-party platforms that share information, services, products, and more.
ANZA Capital is of the view that platform-based, digital infrastructure will be critical in ensuring large-scale, large-consumer-volume services can be effectively delivered – and that Africa represents the best place to develop these services due to the existing infrastructure gap.
