Our geography

From its core offices on the continent, Baylis has a unique ability to go beyond the beaten path

While we maintain a comprehensively pan-African remit, Baylis focuses on opportunities in the West, Central and East Africa sub-regions with physical presences in Dakar, Lagos, Kampala and Nairobi.


We particularly focus on less covered geographies, including francophone and post-conflict countries, where access to much needed developmental and growth capital has been an on-going challenge. This in turn greatly increases our ability to generate financial returns while driving profound impact locally. In particular, our investments have a disproportionate effect on job creation, gender balanced leadership, environmental stewardship and standards of living in these countries.
