The Phembani Group maintains a focus on the Sub-Saharan African mineral resources,
energy and infrastructure industries.
In the early years, (1994 – 2004), our strategy was to pursue investment opportunities arising from the advent of democracy in South Africa. The result – a diverse range of investments across a wide variety of sectors.
However, in the mid 2000’s Phembani made a conscious decision to change our approach and made a number of divestments to focus our investment strategy on the energy and infrastructure sectors.
Phembani is an active investor and in some instances has operational control of its investments. This is relatively uncharacteristic of the BEE investment arena and this approach affords Phembani the ability to contribute to both strategic and operational matters, where necessary.
Phembani’s strategy is to seek out a limited number of larger investments where it will have the ability to meaningfully influence the strategy formulation and execution of that strategy in our investee companies.
