Maris is a diversified investment holding company, committed to responsible, long-term growth in Africa.
We offer investors unique access to frontier markets across the world’s fastest-growing continent.
Our hands-on commitment to operational performance gives us the experience and agility required for success in Africa’s most challenging and remote business environments.
We started our first business in South Sudan in 2009, and over the following 4 years grew to be one of Africa’s top performing private equity funds, doubling the value of our portfolio. But we wanted a structure that accommodates more sustainable growth, so in 2014 we became a Permanent Capital Vehicle.
We now operate in five core sectors – Agriculture & Forestry, Renewables, Services, Property, and Mining – which will experience significant growth as Africa’s population booms and global demand for sustainable, impactful supply chains increases. As a long-term investor we believe we can deliver the environmental sustainability, positive social impact and long-term financial growth that will shape a bright future for Africa.
