Windhoek-based Eos Capital announced the first close for the alternative investment firm’s third and latest fund at the end of last week, The Euphrates Agricultures Fund has won commitments totaling N$90 million, or approximately $5.7 million, from local Namibian pension funds. Eos is aiming to deliver an IRR of 18% for the fund’s investors.

When the fund was launched in 2020, Eos gave the final goal close for the fund of N$500 million, or about $31.4 million at today’s exchange rates. Africa Capital Digest has now learned that that final goal has now been doubled to N$1 billion, or about $63 million, leaving the firm the not insignificant task of raising another N$900 million or so.
