Driving Sustainability, Promoting Empowerment, Realising Return.

Who Are We?

  • Global Experience, African Specialists

    Pegasys Capital builds development initiatives on the African continent into high impact and commercially sustainable long-term ventures

    We part of the Pegasys Group, with over 15 years' experience in African development.

    We have a deep understanding of African commercial and public investments and a long track record in development projects on the continent.

    We bring this understanding into successful structuring of transactions, driving implementable solutions that minimise risk and optimise outcomes.

    We work with a wide variety of clients and partners across the development and investment spectrum, in both the public and private sectors, helping to shape emerging economies.

  • Ethos

    Our Ethos

    Without a context-appropriate business model that ensures long-term financial sustainability, African development initiatives will be constrained.

    Equally, for an investment to generate and grow financial returns, it must empower its communities, contribute to economic growth and protect its natural environment.

    Our approach measures success equally upon three fundamental pillars: commercial sustainability, socio-economic impact, and environmental benefit.

The Team

Our people are highly qualified, dynamic, innovative and ambitious. Diverse in their backgrounds and professional skill sets, their complimentary capabilities and knowledge form the exceptional team that drives Pegasys Capital.
