OUR BUSINESS

We create opportunities for investors seeking long-term, sustainable and profitable investments in both conventional and renewable energy. This is demonstrated by our choice of investments and project pipeline which deliver profitable returns consistently over the long term.

We are also committed to the upliftment of communities and, true to our name Hulisani, which in TshiVenda means “to nurture”, we aim to nurture economic benefits for the investor and, as a proudly black-managed Company, the socio-economic benefits for the communities where we operate.

With Sustainability, Consistency and Growth at the heart of our business, Hulisani aims to be a leading, long-term energy investor and innovator in emerging markets

HOW WE CREATE VALUE

Our experienced executive team and Board add value to the companies in which we invest by offering strategic insight and solid African and global investment experience. This allows us to realise the opportunities inherent in the investments as well as to create other organic opportunities that only experience and innovation can unlock.

Hulisani partners with reputable and like-minded companies and invests where we believe we can add value and where there is potential upside. Our targeted long-term net return is in the CPI + 6% – 8% range, which means that, at the time of signing acquisition agreements, we target a return that exceeds inflation by a significant margin. We are actively involved in the management of our portfolio to enhance returns and optimise our investments.

The success of our business relies on strong leadership and robust corporate governance.
Hulisani has a leadership team of highly experienced professionals with a deep knowledge of the energy sector.
