Our Culture & values
Our culture is informed by our values and our goal for the firm.
We do everything with the long term in mind. This means that all of our decision making is done to first of all ensure that the long term prospects for a nation, a company or an individual are secured and then from there we work backwards to the present time.
Our relationships are at the center at all that we do. Behind the analysis, numbers and transactions are people and Evago Global's business benefits from a web of strategic relationships around the world with governments, companies, investors and individuals. In every project we take on, we seek to build new relationships by adding value to our clients and other stakeholders.
In our world today, especially in business, it is easy to compromise on qualities like integrity, trust, honesty and faithfulness. We have always resolved to be true to these qualities which ultimately creates our character as individuals and a firm. As the years have passed, we have continued to see, that as we follow this path, it has ultimately been beneficial to us even when it seemed like we have lost or failed for sticking to good character. These decisions have helped us maintain good relationships with other faithful partners around the world and helped us secure long term success in all that we do.
Our values inform our main goal at Evago, which is ‘Transformative Finance’. This goal encapsulates everything that we are about as an organization. This means using finance as a tool to bring about positive transformation across Africa. In order to do this successfully, we focus on the long term, taking decisions to train our people to the highest standards, investing in the regions in which we work, respecting the environment and insisting on the highest standards of work in all of our projects.
Our strategy is to continually develop the firm’s culture so it can reflect in everything that each individual does in the company and each task they do on behalf of Evago.
To achieve our goal, we have developed expertise in three main areas and these are the following areas.
Transformative investing is about being deliberate about making a positive impact through every investment.
It also means building it for the long term, taking decisions to train our people to the highest standards and potential, to invest in the regions in which we work, respecting the environment and insisting on the highest standards of work in all of our projects.
We are passionate about Africa and have developed methods and contacts to help us act as a bridge between African markets opportunities and global investors.
Working in Africa requires a whole new set of skills. Simply transplanting the thinking and mind-set of doing business in the developed markets will not be enough.
We innovate in everything that we do, whether it is in advising clients, investing, fundraising or even our business administration; the question that we always ask is, whether this is the best way to achieve this goal.
This is especially important in emerging markets where there may not be institutional structures in place and in order to succeed, one has no choice but to be innovative.
As a trusted adviser to companies, governments, institutions and individuals around the world, at Evago our strength lies in our people.
There is no typical team member at our company. Our team members are multi-talented with diverse educational and work experiences but they are bound together by an intense creative drive which we all possess here at Evago.
We like to do each deal differently and better than the previous one based on what we learnt. With every deal, we have an experienced practitioner leading with unparalleled support provided by our sector analysts, in tune with international networks, deal leaders and support staff.
