Zeder’s portfolio of investments has gone through a process of refinement in the past years as we have moved from several smaller investments to fewer, larger commitments. We have done this in order to further pursue our value creation strategy, which relies heavily on focussing efforts and recourses on specific investments, and influencing strategy, operations, structures and financing.
Our current core investments provide the perfect platform for us to pursue our growth strategy and give us a good presence and impact across the agribusiness industry. We will continue to actively look at adding specific investments to our portfolio in strategic and sizable businesses, with proven track records and sound leadership.
Africa is a very exciting place to be for investing in the agribusiness industry and, despite the challenges of the region, represents an abundant opportunity to create value in the future. Our core strategy remains consistent – to identify areas of potential, invest our resources in support of that potential, and finally to work with management to grow those investments into profitable and sustainable enterprises. This is how we create value.
