About Us

CENTURY PRIVATE INVESTMENTS is an Africa-centric privately owned investment firm focused on Advisory and Asset Management.

CENTURY PRIVATE ADVISORS, the Advisory arm is focused on Financial Management related Services provided to strategic clients in the Corporate and in the Sovereign arena. Clients vary from Leading European Markets’ listed financial investor, to Middle East based large financial holding and Government Owned Institutions. Their common denominator: a firm commitment to develop their investment strategy and/or improve their portfolio of assets in Africa.

CENTURY CAPITAL HOLDING, the Asset Management arm benefits from partnerships with select Asia based family offices and asset managers. The objective is to be a pragmatic capital bridge and provide a differentiated approach to investors seeking rare and inaccessible opportunities. Since inception in 2011, The investment holding has already expanded its base of assets across strategic industries (infrastructure, mining, real estates and services) across Africa.

The firm’s unique strategy focused on long term perspective is very much aligned with its company logo which is pronounced “Bai Nian” and means ‘Longevity’, ‘Lifetime’ as well as ‘Century’ in Mandarin (Chinese).  This perspective is also illustrated in the firm’s choice of investment vehicles – such as unlimited life company or other flexible structures, structures all different from the ten year life structure typically adopted by traditional Private Equity managers.
