CGEP takes the approach a multinational company follows in rolling out new business lines – we build businesses using tried and tested models, employ the best local talent, and provide central guidance and support to ensure performance and take actions to minimize risk. We leverage the scale of our portfolio to identify synergies and drive efficiency.

CGEP’s leadership and central team provide value-added direct support to the businesses in our portfolio which de-risks investments for investors. This goes beyond regular monitoring of financial and social performance to taking an active role using management dashboards that guide commercial decisions and driving social impact by providing central monitoring and evaluation (M&E). Being market-driven, we also lead business development and global partnerships. We identify potential investors to raise capital for the businesses and identify grant funders to increase social impact. In addition, we provide regular central support functions including legal, finance, and communications and marketing.
