Investment Overview

Act Financial focuses mainly on equity investing in different shapes including buyouts, leveraged acquisitions, and multiple forms of liquid and illiquid investments:

  • PIPEs: Private Investments in Public Equities, where we seed and lead co-investments in decent minorities in listed companies as well as managing buyouts and turnarounds
  • Private Equity: Depending on the cycle of the market Act will always seek to have investment opportunities among the public and the private markets. We invest in multiple sectors regardless of the stage and age of the company, with focus on scalability, high growth and relevant proxy to the economy
  • Pre IPOs: As anchor investor and corner stone participant, Act Financial, can start building PIPE positions before listing, and capitalizing on the team’s capital market’s experience, it helps in the completion of the successful listing process as well

Act is currently building also a debt Financing platform where it will be able not only to partner as equity holder with successful investments, but rather provide multiple creative, customized and engineered structures and solutions for companies in need of funding.

Act has ambitious capital growth plans while maintaining a cost-efficient small setup. We believe that quality pays off over scale in investment companies.

A key factor to success is the ability to source investors and raise funding whenever is needed. Placement has always been an area of expertise for the team and should significantly help in growing the company.

The void of local investment managers that happened in the PE universe is currently replaced by the international players with generic experience across emerging markets in general. However, there is a clear vacuum of professionals who speak the language, know the business environment, and have spent long enough time in the local market with the right understanding of the culture and the system.

Whether it is a listed investment or a private investment, target return on the opportunity is our drive. We also always take time into our consideration; where we favor liquidity and quick scalability

The management team is fully invested in the setup and are investing their own money. Act is also built over the concept of seeding all its investments with co- investors to constantly align the interest.

We believe that environments are dynamic and the ability to timely adapt is key for success. So hovering between the stock market and the private investment universe is key. Also, adjusting the deal structures and exit plans are always key to remain dynamic with market conditions, cycles and trends.

The founders and management team share unmatched trust and harmony where they crossed over many years and teamed up for investments. The firm’s multi- disciplinary team has a long and successful track record of generating attractive investment returns having successfully executed numerous transactions requiring capital flexibility, financial restructuring, and operational turnaround not only on the buy side but also on the sell side.

The founders of Act have decided to move from the advisory business to directly own the investments out of their belief and conviction of the existence of the opportunity.

Investment Philosophy

Egypt Centric

Act Financial is an Egypt centric investment company with a full conviction in the never-ending Egypt’s story and capitalizing on the team’s experience in understating the local dynamics

Out of the Box

We love structuring and creating opportunities through constantly thinking out of the box to design the investment and the space and create the unique exposure


We follow a detailed buy-side investment approach and a detailed selection process looking for ripe investment potentials with high conviction to find the right investment vehicle


We believe that structure and tactics are crucial to unlock value, both hidden intrinsic value in the investment, as well as the value creation that we add to the equity story


The process is managed in a way similar to a pit stop on the fast track of a good engine racing vehicle. high Corporate Governance standards secures and guarantees safety of the trip

High Returns

And as much as we value the selection, the creativity of structuring, and the tactics to unlock value, we are also believers that translation of this into realizing high returns and timely exits are the name of the game

Investment Process

Deal Sourcing

Based on the team experience, and the scarcity of active money managers in Egypt, Act Financial has an unmatched access to deal flow in different sectors and investment types and shapes. Be it listed on the exchange or on the private universe.

Deal Planning


Through a complicated process and detailed screening and connections, Act would always be scanning different opportunities to promote it into a target transaction


Once deal is shortlisted, as explained, we start our discussions with the investment structure making sure the structure creates an investable opportunity for us


After Clearing the basic concept on the structure we started getting into the valuation discussion. Our buy-side experience secures the right value for the right investment.


Then, a full due diligence takes place on the transaction that will include legal, financial, as well as technical due diligence in multiple cases. PIPE opportunities can be faster on this.


Before entry we keep a close eye on exit, defining the type of the transaction, the tenor of the investment, and the relevant ticket size


SOURCING Supply & Demand

Our sell-side experience, puts us on the top of managing the entry of the investment, from raising the correct co- investments to sourcing the right sellers.


Getting on the board to start having the strategic revisions of the business direction to make sure full value is unlocked. We hire the right members.


Sometimes, specially when expanding to new non-core business lines, we help in hiring the right expert management team through our connections.


The key value addition is not usually on the operational turnaround, but rather on our IB expertise, making sure the investment is perfectly shaped.


This creates an updated equity story which is the most important aspect to attract the right investments.


This will make sure that the equity story is properly communicated to new layers of investors similar to the IPO management experience.


Managing the exit through strategic sale or on the market is our competency making sure all the above is realized in the shortest possible time with the maximum IRR.
