UC’S UNIQUE Investment Strategy

Union Capital’s investment strategy is to provide risk capital in order to enable the growth, development, reconstruction, and expansion of Egyptian SMEs. We do this through the upgrading, modernization, and professionalization of their management systems, service delivery, and polished business models in order to enhance their organizational capacity, operational competence, and commercial success.

Union Capital makes investments in companies that operate, but are not necessarily incorporated, within Egypt. Investments include expansion capital, spin-offs from business reconstruction or privatizations, and management buy-outs.

Our funds seeks to generate superior returns for investors through providing growth and expansion capital to a carefully crafted portfolio of active Egyptian SME investments, with holding periods of 3 - 5 years.

Investors will find that our strategy is compelling, as we move to capitalize on the opportunities presented by Egypt’s very own growth story:

  • A home-grown, highly-qualified, and well-networked investment team.
  • A hands-on, active ownership approach to value creation.
  • A rigorously developed sector focus, supported by a solid growth trajectory, and aligned with positive economic fundamentals.

Union Capital’s fund targets investments in three major sectors:  

  • Consumer: healthcare goods and services; education; communications; food services; retail, and media. 
  • Industrials: Food and beverage production and processing; manufacture of consumer goods and feeder industries; production of construction and building materials. 
  • Business & financial services: consumer finance; prepayment; Insurance; electronic payment processing; leasing; logistics; business process outsourcing; and software development.
