Surya believes that some fundamental themes will underpin the long-term economic growth and social development of Greater East Africa, notably:
  • • Positive demographics
  • • Rise of the middle class
  • • Import substitution
  • • Competitive export focused sectors
  • • Need for social infrastructure
Surya focuses on sectors that benefit from the confluence of a number of these secular themes.  We further filter opportunities based on whether the sector offers the opportunity to build platforms of scale over time, balancing investment requirements with return potential.  We prioritise sectors and opportunities where we can make a difference using our network of financial and expertise investors.  While we are generally open minded on new opportunities, the sectors that we are particularly focused on are:
  • • Financial services, focusing on underpenetrated segments
  • • Consumer-led sectors such as consumer goods, import-substituting manufacturing and retail
  • • Education including K-12, tertiary and vocational
  • • Healthcare including services, pharma and devices
  • • Real estate development
  • • Transportation & logistics
  • • Renewable energy
