Our Approach

On each investment, we follow a structured process to assess and track the impact generated from the point of screening, through the investment lifecycle until our exit and beyond.

Step 1

Impact Thesis Our overarching investment philosophy is guided by strategic impact objectives which are mapped to the UN SDGs

Step 2

Impact in screening process For each potential investment, we review to ensure fit with our strategic impact objectives. We are deliberate in seeking businesses with potential to impact socially and environmentally in line with our impact thesis

Step 3

Impact in formal documents We seek to ensure all relevant investment documentation reflect our impact thesis

Step 4

Impact in portfolio companies We collaborate with portfolio companies to define impact metrics and goals that align with business strategy and growth. These are consistently tracked, reported and managed

Step 5

Impact reporting Our impact reporting framework seeks to track and communicate the performance of the fund and portfolio companies against the agreed predetermined impact metrics

Step 6

Impactful Exits As part of our exit process, we seek to institute a system which ensures that impact philosophy is sustained by the portfolio companies and any new investors post-exit


We are committed to ensuring that our investment activities and internal practices reflect global standards for environmental sustainability and good governance. Our investment process incorporates the IFC’s Performance Standards on Social and Environmental Sustainability (IFC Performance Standards) as reference standards.

We review potential investments in relation to their ESG impact, and we are committed to maintaining compliance with applicable national and international laws guiding the sectors we invest in.

We also work closely with investee companies to adopt and implement policies to prevent bribery, corruption, and financial crimes.


CCA looks to foster inclusive growth for the communities within which our businesses operate. We are committed to diverse representation both internally and within our portfolio companies, and specifically on empowering women within our sphere of influence.
