Being a part of Heirs Holdings is more than just a job; it is being a part of a company that believes that intellectual capital is the driving force in creating economic value.
With great confidence in the future of Africa, I am pleased to introduce Heirs Holdings. Now is the time to become engaged in transformative investments across the continent. It is time to develop an environment that creates employment and value, catalysts for economic growth and quality-of-life gains for all Africans.
My colleagues and I are excited and optimistic about Africa’s future. Our excitement is not premised on the fact that we are Africans and feel a moral obligation to be “blindly optimistic.” Here at Heirs Holdings, we have a much more informed basis and believe we can make positive change across the continent for the greater good of its people. Heirs Holdings is the vehicle through which we intend to drive this change and create significant value in the process.
I believe African economies can and will normalise and in the process create a number of opportunities to produce and deliver world-class products and services, especially as Africa’s consumers become increasingly informed and their income continues to grow. Our investment philosophy at Heirs Holdings is built on our track record of successfully creating a financial services group, which now spans the African continent and is transforming the way Africans gain access to both basic and more sophisticated financial service products. It is proof of our ability to deliver solutions that work in the African environment.
Heirs Holdings is a long-term investor. Our mission is to create economic and social value in Africa through long-term investing and business turnaround activities with a view to nurture entrepreneurship and improve business excellence across the continent. Our investment universe extends from start-up ventures to established high-growth companies.
We focus on five key sectors that we believe are the bedrock of Africa’s economic development: financial services, healthcare, natural resources, infrastructure and real estate. Our commitment to investing in Africa’s future is further inspired by our desire to support and celebrate Africa’s business leaders and entrepreneurs through our related philanthropic programs at The Tony Elumelu Foundation. The premise is our strong conviction that entrepreneurial success and a vibrant private sector are critical to Africa’s future.
In the pages that follow, we share the strategic intent and focus of Heirs Holdings, which underpin our enthusiasm for what we believe will be a new age in Africa. Heirs Holdings is well positioned to exploit this new age. Fundamentally, we are an African investment company with a track record of success across Africa.
We look forward to partnering with those who share our vision in Africa and around the world.
Tony O. Elumelu, CON
