Responsibility

At Kgori Capital, we approach business with a responsibility to protect the environment, uplift communities and maintain the integrity of decision making structures within our firm and companies that we invest in.

We describe this approach as ‘Corporate Citizenship’, a defining value which has been part of our identity since the inception of our business. Our Responsible Investing and Socio-economic Development strategies are critical in achieving our goal of making a positive impact in the jurisdictions in which we operate.

Proudly Botswana

Responsible Investing

We invest in companies on behalf of our clients and have undertaken to vote on resolutions and engage with the management of these companies on material issues.

We do this with a view to encourage global best practice standards of corporate governance such that the investee companies are managed in a way that is sustainable and creates long term value for our clients.

Matters of an Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) nature are integrated into our investment process. The analysis and interrogation of risks and opportunities arising from ESG issues is integrated in the proprietary research performed on the companies we invest in on behalf of our clients.

We believe that the integration of ESG factors into the investment decision making process delivers long-term investment performance for our clients. Kgori Capital is a signatory of the United Nations-supported Principles of Responsible Investing (UNPRI).

Socio-economic Development

At Kgori Capital, we believe that the journey of transformation starts with transforming our country’s mindset.

Broader education has thus become our focal point, as demonstrated by these corporate citizenship initiatives:

Kgori Internships

  • Internships for final year students and recent graduates seeking exposure to, and some experience in, an investment management firm.
  • Interns have direct interactions with professional staff, including investments, operations and business development staff and are given tasks and projects to develop their understanding of investment management. A stipend is provided for the duration of the Internship.

Kgori Press Club

  • At Kgori Capital, we recognise that the media has a vibrant and important role to play in promoting business and the economic development of our country.
  • For this reason, we established the Kgori Business Press Club as a vehicle to bridge the gap between the worlds of media reporting and business, as well as to give more public insight to business and government activities.
  • The Kgori Press Club provides a platform for business and media to engage on topical issues that are of interest to the public.

Kgori Scholarships

  • As a future-focused company, it is our intention to award scholarships to excelling students in the near future.
