INTRODUCTION TO THEBE

Founded in 1992 as a pioneering black-owned company, Thebe Investment Corporation is one of South Africa’s leading investment companies, managing assets of over R6 billion. Thebe is a unique entrepreneurial company that does not exist only to make a profit, but is driven by a commitment to serve the broader interests of communities at large.

Our investment portfolio spans tourism, mining resources, infrastructure, renewable energy, petrochemicals, telecommunications, financial services, and healthcare. We actively work to promote mutually beneficial economic partnerships by investing in or developing businesses that create value for our stakeholders through the origination, execution, and prudent management of our investments.
