African Capital Investments (ACI), an independent corporate advisory boutique focused on providing access to proprietary African investment opportunities, has deployed DealCloud. ACI was established to capitalise and contribute on the emergence of the African consumer class driven by strong economic growth, demographic trends and urbanisation. The ACI team is made up of industry professionals who understand local markets and have backgrounds in private equity, corporate finance, M&A, strategic advisory, and portfolio management.
ACI is headquartered in London and its operations are supported by an international network of sector-specific advisors and consultants. ACI is in direct contact with, or is one degree of separation from, key decision makers in both the private and public sector across the African continent.
“From the first demo it was clear to us that DealCloud would enhance our business. Unlike other technology providers, DealCloud is tailored to the financial services industry and provides a seamless CRM, project management and operational KPI monitoring platform,” says Gianpaolo Pera, CEO and Co-Founder of ACI. “DealCloud has driven efficiencies in our business as our investor communications, deal and regulatory processes are now fully integrated on one platform.”
“The ACI team is processing a high volume of deal flow and has closed transaction across 17 African countries,” says Ben Harrison, DealCloud’s Chief Revenue Officer. “We’re proud to provide them with a centralized deal and relationship management platform that helps them drive the best possible outcomes in each of their engagements.”
