Vunani is one of the oldest existing black-owned Investment Banking firm in South Africa, having started out as African Harvest Capital in 1997. The Firm is one of the few JSE listed Financial Services firms of its kind. Our Vision is to be the preeminent independent investment banking boutique in Southern Africa and the "Advisor of Choice" for the region.
We are a trusted advisor and financier to clients in South Africa and increasingly in sub-Saharan Africa. These clients include leading public sector entities, corporations, entrepreneurs, municipalities, financial sponsors and boards of directors. At the heart of everything that we do is "a focus on the client".
The objective of the Investment Banking Division is to build longstanding and enduring client relationships while delivering advice and capabilities across a full range of corporate finance and investment securities products. We accomplish this by delivering "thoughtful strategic advice" and superior "client friendly" execution. The sustainability of our business depends on our value proposition. We use our entrepreneurial advantage to support our client relationships and recognize that our success is driven by being nimble and innovative.
We are focused on being a significant financier and provider of capital-raising services, which, in turn, enables our clients to achieve their strategic goals. We also remain committed to a strategy of principal investing, including working alongside our clients.
