Simeka, a Xitsonga word from which our company derives its name, means to plant, nurture, anchor or balance. Our insignia, the baobab tree, is a symbol of resilience, sturdiness and growth – the qualities that form the basis of our business values and operational philosophy.
Simeka seeks to grow into a major investment group, strategically positioned to leverage appropriate investment opportunities in South Africa and the African continent at large, for maximum return and positive impact.
Our investment approach is based on identifying opportunities for investment growth companies with sustainable business models. Our investment team conducts rigorous and comprehensive due diligence to build in-depth know-how of the companies and industries in which we look to invest. We have a partnership mentality towards entrepreneurs and other stakeholders and take active ownership to maximise value in our portfolio.
Simeka’s leadership team has extensive experience operating in emerging economies, as well as deep insights into the challenges investors face when investing in Africa.We navigate the territory using expertise acquired in various industries, as well as our proven track record in managing and transforming businesses to generate strong returns for investors. We look to team-up with like-minded management teams who share our values.
