About us

The vision of Heritage Capital Partners is to build a platform of owner managed businesses that are pillars of job creation, transformation and skills development.

The business was founded out of need for a change in the economic growth narrative of South Africa from three fronts:

  • An explicit focus on investing for growth and expansion as opposed to pure acquisitions
  • Creating superior long term returns for our investors, as well as lasting value for a broader and more representative stakeholder base through our choice of economic sectors of focus
  • Providing a unique solution for a holistic approach to BEE in its portfolio companies

We strongly believe that we achieve the highest return for all our partners, and the best socio – economic return for the communities in which we invest, by purposefully considering the social and environmental context of our investments.
