Leading Frontier Market Investment Capabilities

Cerberus Frontier has developed a successful approach to frontier market investing, leveraging leading investment strategies, in-country relationships, and hands-on portfolio management.

Based on a decade of investing in frontier markets, our Cerberus Frontier team has the ability to apply international best practices and customized institutional knowledge of the frontier with capital solutions for growing companies in dynamic economies. In addition, Cerberus Frontier operates out of hubs in Singapore and Dubai along with on-the-ground resources in many of its core markets to help with deal sourcing and underwriting in pre-investment phases, as well as portfolio management following the investment.

Cerberus Frontier also works closely with Cerberus’ investment and operating platforms, including Cerberus Operations and Advisory Company, to evaluate opportunities and bring industry knowledge and operating resources to investments. Cerberus’ proprietary operating capabilities provide our Cerberus Frontier team with an edge to enhance a company’s strategy and operations and drive significant growth and value creation.

 

Established Track Record in Diverse Industries

Cerberus Frontier has an extensive track record of direct investments in dynamic frontier markets, including Ethiopia, Georgia, and Mongolia. The Cerberus Frontier team has completed more than 30 transactions and currently manages a portfolio in a variety of key sectors, including Consumer Goods, Healthcare, and Building Materials.

Cerberus Frontier is also very focused on sectors that are important for driving economic growth and development, including Telecommunications, Logistics and Transportation, and Clean Energy.

 

 

Commitment to Positive Impact

By investing in frontier markets that are otherwise overlooked by the global investment community, Cerberus Frontier is able to contribute to economic development in some of the world’s least developed countries. We are committed to ensuring our investments have a positive impact beyond achieving successful financial results, an approach core to Cerberus Frontier since our inception.

We believe that the de­f­i­n­i­tion of “true success” is financial profit complemented by tangible gains for all stakeholders. In addition to pursuing a high risk-adjusted rate of return, Cerberus Frontier is committed to making valuable contributions to economic development and social benefits in the regions in which it invests. We consider the impact of our investments in the form of job and wealth creation, community revitalization, macroeconomic impact, environmental protection, governance enhancement, knowledge transfer, government revenue support, and sustainable development.

Cerberus Frontier believes firmly that our holistic view and investment approach enhances the return on our investments. By helping our portfolio companies implement more rigorous policies around environmental protections, governance, social considerations, and other related areas, Cerberus Frontier makes companies more attractive targets for future investments.
