We believe that environmental, social and governance (ESG) standards are inextricably linked with strong financial returns. We aim to be responsible investors, having a deep appreciation of the impact that non-financial factors can have on value creation, long-term company performance and the health of society at large.
The Rx Healthcare Fund seeks to create an integrated healthcare ecosystem in Africa, hoping to achieve a sustainable social impact across the continent. To that end, we will integrate ESG disciplines, in particular those used by Developing Financial Institutions (DFIs), into each stage of our investment process. Further, we will work to instill the importance of ESG considerations along with best corporate governance practices in our portfolio companies. Delivering attractive private equity returns to our investors while achieving significant development impacts to the African people is the cornerstone of our strategy.
