Bridging the Gap between private and public.
Established in 2015 in a collaboration between the Ministry of Planning and other quasi-government institutions as a private investment entity, AYADY aspires to encourage investments and promote development in Egypt through providing access to capital to small and medium enterprises (SMEs).
Out of a desire to build a “Better Egypt”, AYADY acts as an “Economically” driven investment vehicle aiming to endorse development across Egypt – while maintaining viability to ensure sustainability across it’s investment portfolio.
Being focused on investments in the SME segment with interest in both public and private ventures; Ayady aims to provide access to finance through direct investments in sectors that provide the Egyptian population with jobs, goods and services of basic necessity, such as access to food, homes, healthcare, quality education and financing.
Ayady has set in place a robust investment strategy that aims at generating superior financial returns while achieving development impact across the Company’s investment portfolio. These strategies aided in building Ayady’s portfolio and will continue to aid the buildup of a pipeline for potential investment opportunities.
We aim to grow a resilient and diverse portfolio with a mandate to create sustainable financial and economic returns, while promoting our ultimate objective of building a ‘Better Egypt’, with impact across Egyptian governorates in line with Egypt’s 2030 Vision and UN Sustainable Development goals.
Business Practice Impacts
Through implementing best practice management styles in our investments, Ayady aims to improve the environmental and social aspects of the surrounding community and improve critical factors such as gender equality.
Ayady focuses on investments in the fields of financial services, education, urban development, agriculture and energy sectors. Such sectors aim to deliver goods and services that can be crucial to providing the basic needs at the heart of the SDGs.
National Economy Impacts
By creating value in our investments, this will help our portfolio companies in the SME segment to stimulate backward and forward linkages that can foster competition, innovation, diversification and create market linkages between small scale producers and bigger producers.
