Headquartered in Mauritius, Maris is a diversified investment holding company whose five divisions operate across seven African markets. Our clients include numerous multinationals including GE, Weatherford and Anadarko and we represent global brands such as JCB, Parker and Kaiser.
We manage 17 holdings and have the capacity to start new ventures in partnership with our clients. Under the guidance of a highly experienced board, our Executive Team has over a century’s direct operational and management experience in frontier markets and we invest in the development of talented, practical managers across our divisions.
We operate to the IFC performance standards and through Maris Community programmes we work to maximise the environmental and social benefit of our investments, alongside our returns to shareholders.
International Financial Services is the group Administrator in Mauritius. Our companies are supported by back office hubs in Nairobi and Maputo, which are home to our finance, procurement, and human resource functions. This structure allows us to manage costs and ensure strong central controls in our challenging and high cost environments. Research and business development support is offered by our small team in London.
