We understand the challenges that investors face daily; the search for opportunistic investments that are pre-screened with real potential for asymmetric returns. To meet that goal, KFG offers a suite of services that connect fast-growing companies and funds with our own capital and our capital partners.
Our value proposition is built on 4 pillars; Providers of Capital, Founder Aligned Experience, Strategic Insights, and Investor Know-How.
At KFG, we seek out investments that create and protect long-term value, utilize ethical and compliant business practices, promote transparency and effective management of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) risks, consider the needs of stakeholders both internal and external to the company, and embrace a diverse, equitable and inclusive culture.
At KFG we invest with purpose - to ensure long term growth in a sustainable world. We actively seek out investments that enhance the wellbeing of people, strengthen our shared communities, and preserve our planet.
In January 2022, KFG launched Africa Growth, applying KFG's expertise in investment, pre-screening, and advisory services to high growth potential business ventures in Africa.
KFG seeks out the brightest ideas and identifies the hardest working and most creative founders. We collaborate with a vast network of investors to earn sustainable returns that meet our collective financial objectives in markets and in technologies that move fast.
