About Us

Focused on building sustainable long-term value

Calculus Capital, founded in 2006, is a privately held, owner managed investment company focused on building sustainable long-term value for all its stakeholders through equity returns. The shareholders of the business are management and a small, select group of high net worth individuals and family offices, with whom Calculus Capital shares long-standing relationships.

The company is not a private equity fund, and therefore is not dictated to by investment mandates in terms of time horizon or sector. Calculus Capital has the ability to hold assets as required, with no predefined exit period. This allows the company versatility and nimbleness in decision-making with the ability to hold assets through the business and economic cycle, and to realise the true value of investments at the most appropriate time.

Additionally, the company has the flexibility to invest in sectors that may temporarily be out of favour, but which over the long-term represent compelling investment opportunities. Over the years, the business has adopted a partnering approach and invests alongside trusted, professional partners and management teams. Calculus Capital has strong geographic and industry diversification outside of South Africa, with investments in the US, UK, Europe and Australia.
