Actis’ Actis Emerging Markets 3 comprises of a global fund and four regional investment pools targeted at Africa, South Asia, China and Latin America.
The firm was formed following a demerger from CDC in July 2004 when it assumed all direct investment activity and operations previously overseen by CDC. Actis now has over US$3.5bn funds under management and over 100 professionals located in 14 offices.
