We are invested in 72 Magadi Road (Hadada) through Pan African Housing Fund LLC, which is managed by Phatisa Property Fund Manager.

We do not hold direct relationships with the companies that investment funds invest in. Instead, we hold relationships directly with the fund. When investing through investment funds, British International Investment takes an active role as a limited partner to the fund, working with the fund manager to ensure best practices, including in environment, social and governance matters, and investment management oversight.

This investment was made when British International Investment was named CDC Group.
