We started CapitalSavvy to provide investment and finance advisory services to Public sector, Development Partners, foreign and local investors, at a time when the market was short of investment professionals. The founders then decided to embark on a journey to enhance their education and learning with specific emphasis on finance and investments so as to offer world class advisory solutions. This decision would later shape our culture as a firm, where incessant learning is part of our core values. We have since added investment management to our suite of solutions with our flagship fund, the SME Growth Fund – a credit fund focused on offering innovative debt financing solutions to SMEs. CapitalSavvy is headquartered in Kampala, Uganda.
We target to become the leading investment management and advisory partner in East Africa.
We are an indigenous investment management and advisory firm focused on delivering unique insight and partnership for our clients.
With our deep understanding of Africa and the challenges we face as a continent, we are committed to being an enabler along the path of Africa being the next frontier of growth.
In 2020, we launched our investment management business with our flagship fund, the SME Growth Fund – a fund focused on offering innovative debt financing solutions to SMEs with short term trade finance needs. We continue to offer investment advisory services to foreign and local investors, Small and Medium Enterprises, Development Partners and Public sector.
Together with our investors, we are committed to accelerating growth of our economy through facilitating financing solutions to Small and Medium Enterprises.
Our anchor investors are institutional investors, including foundations, pension funds, family offices and high net worth individuals.Invest Now
