Mediterrania Capital Partners has strengthened its senior team with the election of two new Partners.

The company has promoted Rajaa Berrkia, Director of Sustainability and Risk Officer, and Mohamed Ali Abdelhak, Investment Director for North Africa, to its Partnership team, highlighting the range of industry sectors, investment profiles and focus areas that comprise Mediterrania Capital Partners’ platform.

Albert Alsina, Mediterrania Capital Partners’ Founder and CEO, said: “The promotion of Rajaa Berrkia and Mohamed Ali Abdelhak is a natural evolution for these two exceptional long-time Mediterrania professionals.”

Working at Mediterrania Capital Partners since the firm began operations, Berrkia has gained solid experience across its different departments starting as Analyst, then becoming Associate, later taking care of Operations and, since early 2020, being responsible for defining, implementing and measuring Mediterrania Capital Partners’ ESG initiatives across the entire investment portfolio.

She is a graduate of HEM Business School in Morocco and holds a Science Master’s in Corporate Finance from IAE Lyon 3.

As Investment Director at Mediterrania Capital Partners since 2013, Abdelhak has been involved in all investment phases and built up a strong track record successfully leading several investment and divestment processes in various sectors including healthcare (pharma and clinic

management), transport and logistics, financial services, construction, retail and IT. 

With a Bachelor’s degree in Finance from HEC Tunis and a Master’s in Management from ESCP Europe Paris, he has solid asset management skills and an in-depth understanding of a wide range of industry segments in the Maghreb region.

Alsina said: “As Director of Sustainability, Rajaa has elevated our efforts to a very high level. The firm’s focus towards ESG matters is stronger than ever and, with Rajaa’s expertise and commitment, Mediterrania is set to continue to have a positive impact in Africa. Meanwhile, in the last eight years working at Mediterrania, Mohamed Ali has gained solid financial and operational skills; he has become an expert investor and portfolio manager and we’re very excited to have him take on his next challenge as Partner.”
