The Private Equity team at Nedbank Corporate and Investment Banking (CIB) is one of southern Africa's prominent private equity investors, with an established track record of successfully investing and partnering with management teams across a diverse range of mid-market growth companies and sectors.
Nedbank Private Equity invests equity capital to fund business acquisitions, management buyouts, BEE transactions and expansion capital requirements - primarily of mid-market unlisted companies. While we operate in a way similar to independent private-equity fund managers, we invest capital directly off Nedbank Group's balance sheet, which gives us the advantage of not being constrained by the usual investment and disposal time horizon pressures. As a division of Nedbank Corporate and Investment Banking, we hold the Group’s BEE credentials.
Nedbank Private Equity adopts a partnership philosophy to investing, combined with uncompromising moral and ethical standards and a specific focus on environmental, social and governance issues. Our strategic involvement in investments means that we work closely with the management team and shareholders to develop and support the strategic and growth objectives of the business.
We’re able to facilitate transactions involving a majority or entire shareholding in conjunction with the management team and existing shareholders of the business, and further introduce long-standing co-investor partners, as required, while holding only a significant minority shareholding for ourselves. We’re also able to leverage and access the extensive offerings, resources and support from across the Nedbank Group to add value to our investee companies.
Managed by a team of investment professionals with extensive experience that spans a broad range of industries and businesses, Nedbank Private Equity typically invests between R50 million and R500 million in each investee company. We’re a general private-equity investor and targets businesses that have products or services with strong growth potential. However, we do not invest in primary or direct mining and farming businesses, although we may invest in businesses that support the supply chain of these sectors.
Our assessment and internal approval processes mean that we’re able to consider and conclude transactions within the timeframes our target businesses and co-investor partners require.
