About All Africa Partners

All Africa Partners is a London-based investment management firm focused exclusively on listed equity investments in Africa. The firm, which was founded in 2021 by experienced fund managers Colin Smith and Farouk Miah, manages money on behalf of family offices, endowments and HNWIs. The firm is backed by three of the most experienced Africa institutional investors, each of whom is actively engaged with the firm.
