Vantage Mezzanine Fund II  provides mezzanine finance to fast growing, mid-market companies. Focus is on companies that are highly scalable and have the capacity to compete regionally and internationally, but are starved of capital due to their limited ability to raise funding from local financial institutions.

Vantage is playing an important developmental role as a promoter of a new asset class in African markets. The Vantage Mezzanine Fund II has broadened the financial services sector in Africa with the transfer of skills, experience and mezzanine finance to the African market.
