Alternative investment management company focused on catalyzing growth in underserved and underrepresented markets. Early-stage investments Private credit Strategic investments
Zrosk IM is an African investment management company with a core focus on alternative assets. We are purposeful about developing products that are the right fit for the markets we operate in ensuring we have a thorough understanding of the risk around it.
We use our proprietary capital to de-risk; understand and unlock the niches we want to play in before opening it up to external partnerships. We are always experimenting but only offer strategies/products in areas where we believe we have strong confidence in achieving excess risk-adjusted returns.
Our core focus as a company is ALIGNMENT. We believe “magic” happens when we can align interests across multiple stakeholders – our investors, our employees, and our founders/sponsors. We always aim to have sufficient skin in the game. We are the first investors in any sub-asset class we want to develop and aim to be the largest investor when we aggregate capital. Our return is principally from 2 sources – return on our own capital (invested alongside our clients) and the fees we charge our external partners when we generate a return for them. Any other associated fees are to cover the cost of providing that service. We see this as the ultimate alignment of interest.
So far, we have developed 3 product strategies. Early-stage equity investing (Zrosk Early Ventures), local currency private credit (Zrosk Private Credit) and Zrosk Strategic Investments
We however continue to play with other ideas, as we aim to identify and provide high-quality alternative investment opportunities within the markets in which we operate.
