THE BARAK STORY

Barak has grown into Africa’s leading alternative credit financier since 2008

Overview

Executive Summary

Barak uses a time-tested approach to originate, acquire and manage structured commodity-backed transactions across more than 30 African countries.

Focused Proven Strategy

Barak seeks to generate equity-like returns in a capital-constrained market with relatively low volatility and limited correlation to the broader markets. Our strategy focuses on fully-funded or blended debt in the African commodity markets, using asset-backed loans with various forms of collateral. Portfolio Managers manage USD liquidity with respect to investor subscriptions.

Seasoned Management

The executive team is a hand-picked group of specialists with significant expertise in agricultural commodities, structured trade finance, logistics and loan management. Barak maintains a presence in Mauritius (Head Office), South Africa, United Kingdom, Kenya and Ivory Coast to ensure that the correct measures exist from a capital raising and correlating Barak fund deployment.

Robust Proces

Experienced origination and conservative credit approval terms provide control over portfolio composition and asset management, enhancing fund performance. Although Barak’s advantage over banks is quicker turnaround times, the Investment Committee is made up of ex-bankers who maintain the same level of strict reviews once a potential deal is addressed by a Deal Originator to the Head of Credit.

Risk Management Culture

Risk considerations are deeply embedded in every aspect of the investment process, from origination to underwriting and exit. With the implementation of the newly revamped Barak Internal Deal System, the Barak COO, along with the Compliance Team, maintain a level of monitoring and administration that is in line with global risk management pertinent to any investment asset class.

Alignment of Interests

Partners are Barak’s majority shareholders and have tied employee compensation to long-term Fund performance. Barak maintains a strong firm-wide commitment to best-in-class operations, compliance, and client service.

Investment Philosophy

Barak has grown into a globally recognised Fund Management company, providing investors with unique, uncorrelated strategies in Emerging Markets. Barak has harnessed a robust set of guideline beliefs and investment principles that search for risk-adjusted, valuation-driven yields for investors.

Controlled, Disciplined Approach

Barak favors companies in established markets and commodities that are conducive to lending and credit analysis.

These companies are typically stable, predictable and have low default rates due to high commodity turnover and ability to liquidate stock.

Invest next to Established Market Participants

Barak seeks to partner with well-known international banks to provide senior debt/co-financing on selected transactions.

By investing alongside these participants, the Fund benefits from their deal sourcing capabilities, investment judgment, controlling ownership position, and operational and financial expertise.

Exert Influence Over Financing

By acting as a lead or co-lead in the financing of the majority of its transactions, Barak seeks to gain significant influence over the structure and terms of financing.

Barak seeks to obtain enforceable priority security interest in the collateral.

Portfolio Diversification

Barak believes that a diverse portfolio mitigates economic, sector and country risk.

Commodity allocation and country allocation play a dual role in providing investors with a diversification benefit.
