Please try again Article content The deal will “essentially result in Ethos acting as the African arm for the Rohatyn group,” MacKenzie said. “Plans include raising private equity and credit funds, as well as forestry, agricultural and infrastructure funds that will include investments in renewable energy assets on the continent.” Africa’s need for funds to finance infrastructure projects is massive. While there are about $2.5 trillion of public works in the pipeline on the continent, many won’t be completed because of lack of funding among other constraints, according to McKinsey & Co. That’s where companies such as Rohatyn can help. The deal will give New York-based Rohatyn access to one of the fastest growing regions in the world, said Nicolas Rohatyn, who started the business in 2002. Ethos, with offices in South Africa, Kenya and London, will continue to manage Brait’s portfolio. The advisory agreement between Brait and Ethos will be ceded to the Rohatyn group. Buyout firm Ethos also took over the management of Ninety One Plc’s Africa private equity funds in 2020, with assets in North, East and Southern Africa. —With assistance from Janice Kew.
