This asset class is largely ignored in most investors portfolio’s but we have over the last decade proven it to be an extremely profitable asset class.

Investment Objective

At Africa One our investment and acquisition strategy can by described as a value investing with a “management centric” approach. Thus our strategy can be summarised as buying into outstanding companies at a low PE ratio, whilst empowering management to be financially committed to the long term success of the acquisitions and the Group as a whole.

Value investing has proven to be a successful investment strategy. There are several ways to evaluate its success. One way is to examine the performance of simple value strategies, such as buying low PE ratio stocks, low price-to-cash-flow ratio stocks, or low price-to-book ratio stocks. Numerous academics have published studies investigating the effects of buying value stocks. These studies have consistently found that value stocks outperform growth stocks and the market as a whole.
