Oppenheimer Partners is a global investment business with international expertise and extensive reach and experience. Founded by Jonathan Oppenheimer and three other partners in 2016, our roots are firmly in Africa.

Our Approach

Striving to create value, we look to make long-term investments as a strategic shareholder in any business in which we invest.

Message from our Chairman.

The core of our strategy at Oppenheimer Partners is a twin desire to create a long-term portfolio of businesses, where we can drive value by sharing our operational, legal and financial expertise, while at the same time generating prosperity for the communities in which we operate.

We are confident that this approach will lay the foundations for an investment group that can span the key pillars and sectors of our chosen markets, building on the Oppenheimer family’s legacy and commitment towards making a meaningful and positive impact on society.

We are excited to see the concept of Oppenheimer Partners moving to maturity, and becoming part of the Oppenheimer family’s 120-year journey in Africa.

Jonathan Oppenheimer
