Our Business


Sakhumnotho Group Holdings (Pty) Ltd was founded in late 2000 by a group of four black professionals with experience and expertise in financial services, legal services, merchant and investment banking. At inception the company focused on corporate advisory services and consulting. The focus was on structuring black economic empowerment transactions, conducting valuations, due diligence, capital raising and documentation.
From 2004 the company changed its focus from being an advisory services firm to being a diversified investment holding company with interest in financial services, mining, property, oil and gas, education, surveillance, security systems, ICT and other strategic investments.
Sakhumnotho has exclusively been funded by its active shareholders, taking a conservative approach towards debt funding and leveraging a very lean head office structure. Sakhumnotho has signed Memorandums of Understanding with various BEE Companies to further enhance the broad based empowerment profile of the group in certain large investment transactions.
A similar arrangement has been put in place between Sakhumnotho and businesses in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Nigeria, Ghana, Francophone West Africa, Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda and SADC region countries to increase the Group’s footprint on the African continent.
It is the Boards intention to further create strategic alliances throughout the continent as we believe that this is the African century
