Our Approach

Shanah Investments Approach.jpg
 
 

WHEN LOOKING TO INVEST IN EXISTING ENTERPRISES, SHANAH INVESTMENTS TARGETS GROWTH-CAPITAL INVESTMENTS IN SMALL AND MEDIUM-SIZED ENTERPRISES (SMES) THAT ARE WELL-POSITIONED WITHIN THEIR LOCAL MARKETS. WE ADOPT A SIMILAR APPROACH WHEN CREATING ENTIRELY NEW OPERATIONS IN CHALLENGING MARKETS.


We aim to take a hands-on monitoring approach based on effective value addition. We pride ourselves on providing a helping hand to companies which in their early stages need managerial guidance as well as financial support. 

 

We bring added value to our portfolio companies by:

  • Strengthening their managerial teams and aligning the interests of all shareholders with those of management.

  • Enhancing corporate governance, financial reporting, and transparency.

  • Leveraging our significant network of international partners and advisors

 

As a comparatively young organization Shanah Investments look to grow alongside our portfolio of businesses whilst learning and expanding our own knowledge and experience of the West-African region.

We aim to act as a strategic partner alongside management teams, creating shareholder value while adhering to the following principles:

  • Promoting strong governance structures and oversight in audit, risk management, conflicts of interest, compensation and policies aimed at aligning the interests of shareholders with those of management.

  • Maintaining commitment to environmental and social responsibility. Shanah ensures that its investee companies comply with applicable environmental regulations and labour laws and positively engage with their local communities.

  • Assuring growth and long-term sustainability for the benefit of all stakeholders, while remaining accessible, responsive and accountable.
