We have been investing in energy, since our foundation by a small team of experienced and enthusiastic energy professionals in 1987. Right from the beginning, we saw the potential in Africa, knowing that we had the experience, skills and capabilities to embrace local business cultures without compromising our core principles of fairness and equality. This earned us a reputation for integrity in a region more used to exploitation.
Because we have always remained privately owned, we have avoided the short-term demands of institutional shareholders and kept our sights fixed on long-term growth. It has also given us the flexibility to see the world through local eyes, while maintaining our global perspective.
Thanks to this approach, we are recognised as one of the most agile, principled and adaptable firms in the energy sector.
