Investments Holdings

ABI currently holds interest in a number of companies operating within the target industries of South Africa. The long-term strategy of ABI is to hold significant equity in diverse, profitable and sustainable businesses who it actively supports and adds value. By virtue of being formulated as a “permanent capital vehicle”, the capital structure raised is patient investment capital in nature.
ABI therefore does not have any exit timing pressures, and any decision to dispose/ exit will be based on commercial considerations, as well as guidance from the management teams that we partner with, in the process of concluding.
