Amaya Capital

From ‘good business ideas’ to ‘investable businesses’

Amaya Capital is a principal investment firm that was set up in 2009 to focus on Africa with two key objectives: (i) to create value to its shareholders through investing in strong management teams and businesses and (ii) make a positive, significant and sustainable impact on the communities and society in which it operates.  

Amaya’s business model is to focus on supporting the best management teams by actively shaping and developing businesses in their early stage initially using our own capital and resources to transform them from ‘good business ideas’ to ‘investable businesses’.  At the appropriate time we bring institutional capital and expertise to scale up the business and to provide the necessary capabilities and governance required for the long term sustainable success of the business.

Our people, our advisors and our strategic relationships bring a wealth of business, financial and operating experience across developed and emerging markets with particularly deep experience in the infrastructure related sectors.

Amaya is also very conscious of its social responsibilities and has a selective number of programs under way which have committed investment into areas such as community infrastructure, art and culture and conservation.
