Latest Goodwell Investments News

Goodwell’s second uMunthu fund launches with €50mln

Nov 28, 2022

Image Credit: Pixabay News of a new, significant Africa-focused impact investment fund emerged last week. Goodwell Investments is launching a successor to the firm’s uMunthu Fund, targeting €150 million to back scalable small and medium-sized businesses whose products and services help improve poorly served consumers with access to essential, high-quality but affordable goods and services across the continent. The fund will be co-managed by Nigeria-based private equity firm Alitheia Capital . uMunthu Fund II has already won commitments totaling €50 million from a mix of private investors, family offices, and foundations. The new fund is aiming to deliver a net annual IRR of 20% to its LPs from backing, building, and selling a portfolio of 35 businesses. The average size of the initial investments made by the fund in each individual opportunity is expected to be in the €500,000 to €1 million range, with the most promising businesses having access to as much as €7 million more in follow-on investments. When appropriate, the fund’s mandate allows it to invest as much as €15 million in companies requiring larger amounts of capital, although no single investment can account for more than 10% of the fund’s committed capital.
