Actis recognises that people capability is a cornerstone to competitive advantage.
Our people have diverse backgrounds and skills, and they all share a commitment to investing sustainably in our markets and delivering great returns.
Whether it’s establishing the largest wind farm in Central America, building data centres in Seoul, or providing the springboard for our deal teams to thrive, Actis offers tremendous opportunities for talented individuals.
We recruit in two main areas: Investment Professionals and Platform Professionals.
A career as an investment professional
The primary route into the firm for Investment Professionals is through our Associate Programme. The Programme brings in all Permanent and Summer Associate hires as one “Class” annually every June. They spend their first week together in London, allowing them to build peer relationships, benefit from training and network with senior leadership.
Our Associate Programme allows us to attract high-potential, diverse, junior talent. In turn, this reduces our reliance on lateral hires and the variability inherent in that method of recruitment. Through a structured selection approach, we target those with prior experience with other investment funds, financial institutions and global firms. Those undertaking their 1st year of MBA are eligible for Summer Associate roles (a 10-week internship culminating in a potential offer to join Actis the following year). Those in their 2nd year of MBA or currently in permanent positions are eligible for Permanent Associate roles.
Their prior level of success and expertise is something we build upon by supporting their development in a consistent and structured way. Our Associates are exposed to live deal situations, investment strategies and new projects early on which is also a consistent feature for all other Actis employees.
A career as a platform professional
Our platform professionals provide the springboard for our deal teams and investments to thrive. We nurture outstanding individuals in all roles across Human Resources, Knowledge, Legal and Compliance, IT, Finance and Operations, and global office support teams.
