In 2016, Ethos launched our inaugural mid-market private equity fund.
Ethos Mid Market Fund I successfully closed fundraising in 2018, with commitments of just over R2.5 billion.
The Fund seeks to make investments of between R100 million and R350 million, predominantly in mid-market leveraged buyout transactions. This is a part of the market in which Ethos has a proven track record through Ethos Funds III and IV.
Importantly, the Fund is BEE-majority owned and will be able to participate in deals as the BEE Partner. Ethos believes that the combination of significant empowerment credentials and strong execution capabilities will give the Fund a distinct competitive advantage.
The Ethos Mid Market Fund is led by Edward Pitsi – Managing Partner. Sonja De Bruyn is the Chairman of the Ethos Mid Market Fund I investment committee.
