Africa's premier private equity fund
GIP is a boutique investment company. Our primary objective is to build team spirit in the pursuit of two common goals: client satisfaction and project success.
At GIP, we pride ourselves in conducting rigorous, analytical, bottom-up research and detailed due diligence into all companies and projects prior to any investment.
We consider giving back very much a part of our corporate social responsibility. We are committed to a number of projects in Africa particularly Uganda and Rwanda helping disadvantaged groups.
Passion and talent of our people are crucial to our success. These together with a shared set of values rooted in integrity and excellence form the foundation of our company.
Global Investment Partners, LLC (GIP) is a New York based financial services and business consultancy firm that is focused on nurturing and developing investment opportunities and increasing capital flows into Africa. As a fairly untapped market, Africa presents an opportunity for attractive returns and portfolio diversification.
Our goal is to structure efficient, well managed companies capable of implementing projects with a social economic impact on the lives of Africans and at the same time provide attractive returns for our investors. Implementation is done through a pooled investment vehicle using funds from investors mainly in the US, EU and Asia.
We employ a disciplined, long term approach to investing. The majority of our work is concentrated in East Africa primarily Uganda and Rwanda and targets priority economic sectors like infrastructure, energy and agricultural value addition. As a company, our greatest value-added is detail orientation in packaging and presenting investment-ready projects to our investors.
This includes idea origination, pitch book and business plan preparation, due diligence, pre-feasibility studies, risk mitigation, deal structuring and eventual project execution; all of which are possible due to our strong knowledge of the local business environment and carefully developed strategic relationships.
In addition, we seek to leverage our expertise in US capital markets in the provision of innovative financing solutions and cross-border consultancy services to our global clientele ranging from small businesses to public institutions.
