Our extensive network in Africa places us in a unique position to source confidential data which is not available at generic data providers. This gives us a distinct advantage when making investment management decisions.
We have implemented a custom designed system with a dedicated risk systems specialist. Our system is a proprietary-developed risk management and oversight application. The back-end system is developed based on industry leading SQL, and our front-end application is modular based from the Microsoft suite of products.
We have designed custom views from which we can analyse our exposures.
Our reporting covers many categories, including:
- Performance tracking and attribution (TMB)
- Diversification analysis (vintage, geography, sector, ratings, control status)
- Calculation of risk-return metrics (value bridges, Internal Rate of Return and - Portfolio financial metrics analysis)
- Instrument screening and holdings history
- Top-level aggregation of underlying fund positions (across multiple categories)
- Exposure analysis and history.

ESG Management System
We have integrated an ESG Management System into our bespoke Risk Operating System. This allows us to adopt a methodological approach to manage environmental & social risks and impacts in a structured way on an ongoing basis. It also allows us to track specific ESG metrics and perform investment analysis from and ESG perspective.
