International telecoms, media and technology investment company Delta Partners Capital has raised a US$100m Emerging Markets Fund. Investors include the World Bank, Japanese telecoms giant NTT DoCoMo, as well as a number of leading family businesses from Europe and the Middle East.

Delta Partners Group, as sponsor of the fund, and its affiliates are making a capital commitment of US$20m to the fund. 

The fund will invest in growth capital and selected buyout opportunities in the telecoms, media and related technology (TMT) sectors across Africa, central and eastern Europe, the Middle East, and south-east Asia. 

“We believe that given our depth of expertise in TMT and extensive on-the-ground presence across emerging markets we are uniquely positioned to identify and execute on attractive opportunities in this dynamic sector, and to provide tangible added value to our portfolio companies,” head of investments and managing director Geoffrey Fink said.
