COMMENCING IN MAURITIUS
Established in 2012 the Summit team set out to create an investment platform strategically located in Mauritius with a focus on value creation through the enablement of partnerships across Africa.
Mauritius is a country known and regarded as a favourable financial services centre that maintains the highest levels of compliance and corporate governance, has a very good double taxation treaty framework and with both an English and French speaking workforce, allows for ease of communication across Africa. WHY MAURITIUS
Using our location as a base from which to connect investors with opportunities, and our understanding that to build and establish in Africa takes careful planning, patience and time with a nuanced African focus, Summit believes it can offer a competitive advantage to the process of sustainable value creation.
Commencing as an investment manager with the launch of a private equity fund that was listed on the Mauritius Stock Exchange in 2014, the company has since expanded to set up Summit Strategic Partners in 2015, with its focus on corporate finance, strategy, advisory and research. As a result of Summit’s unconventional methodologies and contrarian approach to corporate finance, strategy, advisory and private equity investment, its continued success is evidenced in the extensive impact it has had on each of its clients’ businesses, whether these are listed in Australia or invested in Africa, financial services majors in South Africa, or companies expanding into Africa.
Recently, Summit Mauritius registered a non-listed private equity investment holding company in Mauritius, with a focus on investment across the financial, property, agriculture and energy spectrums.
Early in 2016, Summit expanded into South Africa, an exercise underscored by bringing together experience and knowledge, youth and wisdom. Summit out to partner with and invest in the talent of the African millennial generation, who are educated, focused and experienced, and who consider it both a responsibility and privilege to be a part of Africa’s development and change, who share Summit’s vision, strategy, and most importantly our African Enthusiasm for change.
