AAIC|Asia Africa Investment & Consulting


Hello, Everyone.

Marking the 14th year of AAIC group, we would like to express our sincere gratitude to everyone for your great support.

Let’s make Japan better, AAIC group’s founding principle and initial hypothesis were “To make Japan better, we need to grow. In order to achieve growth in Japan’s declining population, we need to cooperate, gain synergy with emerging countries and markets, and grow together.”

Our expansion proves that our hypothesis was correct. We have more than 30 colleagues and eight offices: Singapore, Tokyo, Shanghai (China), Mumbai (India), Nairobi (Kenya), Lagos (Nigeria), Johannesburg (South Africa), and Kigali (Rwanda).

We have been creating new value in emerging countries and new business fields by consolidating through know-how (strategic consulting & execution), capital (incubation & investment), and talent (HR services & global network).

In the field of strategic consulting and execution, which we have been running for many years, we provide much support, such as deep dive analysis, M & A support, market development support, and new business creation support.

We are currently investing in 30 companies with the Africa Healthcare Fund (AHF1), the final investment execution is planned for September 2022. Among them, one unicorn venture has appeared. Currently, we are structuring the AHF2, and investment is scheduled to start in the spring. Health tech such as remote diagnosis, artificial intelligence (AI) diagnosis and interpretation, e-commerce (EC), fintech, and insurtech are growing rapidly.

In addition, with our self-invested business in Rwanda, harvesting started smoothly on our 200ha farm and we were able to harvest our first premium coffee.

In the human resources and tech fields, Global Angle, which develops research business, is about to enter its second year of operation and has grown to have more than 170 field researchers across over 70 countries. We will continue to strengthen the marketing & intelligence field together with local human resources.

At the end of May 2021, we published “Super Accelerated Economy Africa: Future Business Map that Changes with LEAPFROG”, it has continued to be a bestseller on Amazon Japan for about half a year. We would like to express our sincere gratitude for your support.

Due to the pandemic, seven essential changes have been further accelerated: 1) from economic value to social value, 2) US-China conflict/US-China war/world decoupling, 3) emphasis on social stability/restraint of private rights/nationalism/rise of nationalism, 4) digitalization/digital transformation (DX), 5) Industry selection/reorganization/Green Revolution, 6) rapid increase in world debt/surplus money, and 7) widening disparity/increasing dissatisfaction among young people.

2022 is expected to be a year of full-scale economic recovery as vaccines become more widespread around the world and the virus will be treated in the same way as influenza in multiple countries. DX investment and green investment will also be in full swing.

The AAIC Group will do its utmost with dreams, passion, and hard work to “create new value in emerging countries and new fields” in the future turbulent world. We look forward to working with you this year.
