We focus on identifying viable investment opportunities where there’s scope for meaningful value creation and strong potential to maximize returns. The original investment focus was skewed towards telecommunications sectors; however, the investment approach has now evolved to focusing on broader sectors beyond telecommunications.
On the back of data driven economy and growing demand for network infrastructure in building digitally connected society and businesses, Mamor Capital invested in two telecommunication infrastructure network build companies that provide solutions to blue chip telecommunications companies. The intention is to grow a portfolio of investments that are value accretive and complement our existing investments in telecommunications through Mamor Telecoms.
In a rapidly changing internet and digital economy space we will in addition to existing investments seek to partner with leading technology companies offering innovative digital solutions to address business efficient processes and creation of products to enhance customer experience.
