The Rohatyn Group (TRG), a specialised global asset management firm focused on investment solutions in emerging markets and real assets, is to acquire Ethos Private Equity (Ethos) – an alternative asset management firm in Africa.

Incorporating Ethos expands TRG’s capabilities and local presence during a volatile period in financial markets, giving investors access to one of the largest and fastest growing regions in the world.

Since 1984 Ethos has made over 150 investments supporting South African and sub-Saharan businesses. With over 20 years of experience, investment teams at TRG offer capabilities across public equities, corporate and sovereign debt, private markets, forestry, agriculture and infrastructure.

Terms of the transaction, which is subject to customary conditions including the approval of the South African competition and exchange control authorities, have not been disclosed.
