PAPE Fund Managers (PFM) has its origins in the establishment in 2005 of Pan-African Capital Holdings (PTY) Limited (PACH), an investment holding and econometric research company. The principals at PACH decided in 2008 to pursue a captive fund model and were successful in attracting the interest of RMB Ventures to invest alongside PACH in the first fund capitalized at ZAR250m (PAPE Fund 1). Fund 1 invested in 7 portfolio companies and has had 6 exits to date.
