The premier African focused investment firm has been awarded ‘Fastest growing Investment company in sub-Saharan Africa 2017’ by the International Finance Magazine.

This follows major successes in its global development and portfolio growth.

Founded in 2007 and behind the investment in Movenpick Ambassador Hotel in Accra, Quantum Global has been focusing on the African development space, particularly in the fields of corporate finance advisory, asset and private wealth management, real estate and investment consulting.

As part of the wider Group, Quantum Global Investments Africa Management (QGIAM) which manages the Group’s seven-sector focused Private Equity funds, have invested in a wide variety of portfolio companies and initiated several ground-breaking greenfield and Brownfield projects in key sectors such as Agriculture and Infrastructure.

Thrilled about the award, founder of the company, Jean-Claude Bastos de Morais said the past year has demonstrated consistent and strong returns over multiple funds.

This for the founder is a “testament to our approach, our partnerships across the continent as well as our clients’ satisfaction.”

Jean-Claude further added that the growing success of Quantum Global Group is based upon bringing together employees who are passionate about Africa, positively contributing to the continent’s investment narrative, whilst also supporting the wider development agenda.

“Through private sector leverage, Africa is one step closer to meeting its development goals through the creation of jobs, industry, contributing toward national growth, as well as encouraging a favourable investment environment for other investors,” the ofunder added.

Beyond the development of industry clusters through innovative greenfield and brownfield projects, Quantum Global Group’s strategy focuses on maximising investment value and returns through its specific local expertise and sectoral active management approach for its African-based and global investors.
