Davis is a leader in his field with over 14 years of experience, most recently as Head of Sustainability, EMEA at The Carlyle Group.

Since the firm’s inception, Helios has integrated financial, governance, environmental and social considerations into our investment framework.

“We believe this is essential for creating value and mitigating risk and is particularly true in the developing markets in which we operate. Our pioneering approach on the continent and best-in-class operating practices enable us to transform African businesses, delivering both economic and societal benefits. Helios’ recent Certification B achievement further recognizes that the firm adheres to the highest standards of corporate governance, transparency, accountability, and social and environmental performance – including its investment strategy and activities.”

“We are delighted that Phil has joined our team as part of our ongoing commitment to build high growth sustainable businesses across Africa,” Helios said in a statement.

Established in 2004, Helios Investment Partners is the leading Africa-focused private investment firm, led and managed by a predominantly African team and based in London, Paris, Lagos and Nairobi.
