Investment philosophy

Two core themes

Actis offers an unrivalled ability to capitalise on two core themes within the world’s growth markets: the expanding middle class and the accompanying demand for better physical and social infrastructure.

Increasing personal wealth and domestic consumption are driving rapid expansion of the consumer class; simultaneously, investment in social infrastructure assets - such as healthcare and education - and in companies that service physical infrastructure assets is increasingly necessary to drive continued economic growth.

Three asset classes

Actis invests across three asset classes: private equity buyouts and growth-capital; energy infrastructure, and real estate.  Each of these three classes benefits from the combined strengths of our global relationships, local offices, industry knowledge and sector expertise. It's a combination of scale and depth that is exceptional amongst investment firms in growth markets.

A commitment to responsible investment

Investing responsibly is especially important in the markets where we invest. We aim to ensure that civic society, our investors, our employees and the wider community all benefit from our investment activities as we work to build successful sustainable businesses.
