Oksa

Morocco Infrastructure

We are invested in Oksa through Kantara LP (previously SGAM AI Kantara Fund), which is managed by Kantara Investments Incorporated LP.

We do not hold direct relationships with the companies that investment funds invest in. Instead, we hold relationships directly with the fund. When investing through investment funds, CDC takes an active role as a limited partner to the fund, working with the fund manager to ensure best practices, including in environment, social and governance matters, and investment management oversight.

This investment was made under a previous strategy. We disclose information on all our current investments, but narrative information on our pre-2012 investments, when we introduced a new strategy, may be limited.

Oksa is a service company operating in the electro technology field with 3 main activities: (i) improvement of the performance of electrical networks through the detection of fraud and technical problems, (ii) preventive maintenance of electrical transformers through chemical analysis and (iii) diagnosis of electrical networks with infrared cameras.
