Nimai has set up an Emerging Market Financial Services focused Private Equity platform. Our target markets are Africa, India & South Asia. Our first Fund is a US$ 150 Mn Fund – Nimai Africa Financial Services Fund. The fund will focus on investing in Financial Services Companies in seven identified countries of Sub-Sahara Africa.


Target Markets

The Fund’s focus is on the following geographies: Kenya, Ethiopia, Ghana, Tanzania, Uganda, Botswana and Rwanda & selectively invest in Nigeria & South Africa. We believe the opportunity to use technology, provide capital & talent to grow new businesses and products is immense the Banking & Financial Services space in these countries. These geographies have the potential for scale, superior net interest margins and fee incomes with a robust ecosystem for growth. The MSME financing & women access to financial services gap in these economies is huge which offers the opportunity for Tech & non-Tech Financial institutions to grow and for us to add value.


Portfolio characteristics

A risk adjusted return of over 20% is targeted over the life of the fund by providing financial capital, network & intellectual capital through Nimai Capital’s global CFOs, Banks, DFIs & Operating Partners network to grow the portfolio companies. The fund will invest US$ 5-20 MM in 10 to 12 Tech & non-Tech Banking & Financial Services companies as expansion capital for a significant minority position in these companies.
