OUR VALUE ADD

The EAEF has supported Sarwa Capital since 2015 by expanding the company’s network of potential clientele and investment opportunities. In 2019, we facilitated the entry of Prudential Financial, one of the largest U.S. insurers, into the Egyptian market, who is in the process of finalizing an acquisition of a minority stake in Sarwa’s newly established life insurance business, an underdeveloped market in Egypt. We also provide training and technical support by instituting corporate governance, international best practices and assisting management with key hires.
