The Sekunjalo Group (international and South African) is widely regarded as one of Africa’s most successful investment holding companies and success stories. It is an emerging multinational which has grown in less than two decades with a seed capital of 20 000 USD to a current investment portfolio value of 4 billion USD.
The Sekunjalo Group and its holding companies are wholly owned by Dr Iqbal Survé and the Survé family trusts in South Africa and offshore. Many of the Group’s subsidiary companies have employees and community participants as shareholders and partners, which is a cornerstone of the Sekunjalo and Survé family ethos of inclusive economic growth.
The Survé family and Dr Iqbal Survé have commited a significant part of the family trust to an endowment through Survé Philanthropies; established 12 years ago, and associated foundations (The Survé Family Foundation, Sekunjalo Development Foundation, South Atlantic Arts & Culture Trust, the Iqbal Survé Bursary Trust, and Social Entrepreneurship Foundation).
The above philanthropic trusts are beneficiaries of 90% of the dividends and profits of The Sekunjalo Group. These foundations focus on sustainability, development, human rights, children’s rights, education, music, arts and culture, entrepreneurship and impact investments.
