Select Africa Limited is an Isle of Man company, established 21 years ago with the intention of owning a number of retail financial services businesses in Africa, outside of South Africa. It is the holding company of the Select Africa group of companies (“Select Africa’).
The controlling shareholder of Select Africa Limited is the African Alliance Group – an investment banking group owned by management and operating in Africa. The business focusses on financial services in Africa and currently owns operations in Swaziland, Lesotho, Kenya, Uganda and Malawi.
Select Africa is a supplier of housing micro-finance solutions, utilising various collection mechanisms but primarily that of a salary deduction model.
A key element of Select Africa’s strategy is to aggressively grow its scale of operation over the next four to five years. This involves both the growth of existing operations and the startup of operations in new African countries. The senior leadership of Select Africa is intensely focused on the creation of a meaningful financial services group within a relatively short period.
The firm intention of the shareholders and executive management of Select Africa is ultimatety to list the group on the London Stock Exchange.
The culture of the group is one of young professional pioneers, who aggressively seek out entrepreneurial opportunities and look to deliver profitable performances with no excuses for non-delivery of agreed upon targets. This requires team players who are self-driven and motivated. The business is staffed by individuals that are extremely diligent in terms of detail, systems, collections, service and strategy execution. The operating standards are already those of a listed company.
There are many challenges in doing business in Africa, but our team views these as opportunities and seeks ways of dealing with the many obstacles in our way. This requires a “can do” attitude and a problem solving outlook with a determined approach to achieving goals. All prospective staff should have a passion for Africa and believe in its prospects.
