Asset Management, Structuring and Advisory

Investment strategies that lead to sustainable returns

Supported by local companies operating under the appropriate regulatory control, our business is structured as an asset management and investment banking firm, free of conflicts of interest, and supported by the adoption of best international practices in terms of management and governance procedures.



Our asset management division, in particular though the action of SG Hemera Capital Partners SGOIC S.A., is organized as an independent practice and focused on identifying investment strategies that lead to growth and sustainable returns in our core markets.

Southern Africa, like many frontier markets, is in the process of evolving their institutional framework and development stage. Part of this process is the creation of mechanisms that bring additional market benefits, such as greater efficiency, specialization, and transparency.

The asset management industry is a key contributor to this transformation, bringing investment alternatives for individuals, companies and institutional investors, domestic and non-domestic. Therefore, the industry is a significant channel for the deployment of foreign investment into the underlying economies.

It also brings specialized and well-prepared investors to each asset class, improving the capacity to generate investment with stronger fundamentals, a better risk assessment and management, favouring returns to investors and also to other stakeholders, such as banks and other lenders.

Our approach

HCP designs specialized investment mechanisms, aimed at structuring, creating, and managing investment funds and several types of assets, including property, securities, and alternative assets.

In addition, we provide discretionary portfolio management, which allows investors to delegate asset management within previously established criteria using a dedicated mandate.

We aim to meet the needs of the market by offering investors several types of assets based on risk mitigation criteria, which allows a sustainable return on investment.
