BIG has a deep-rooted history of investing and managing successful mining ventures in Southern Africa. We aim to expand our mining investments across the African continent through strategic partnerships with local management teams, industry and governments. Our main investment focus is on near production and brownfield projects, beneficiation and expansion of operating mines through significant minority or majority equity positions.
BIG is passionate about investing in infrastructure projects in developing economies. We recently established a project development division, named Bunengi Infrastructure, to focus on the SkyTrain (TM) project and seek out other infrastructure projects that fit our investment criteria and philosophy. The SkyTrain (TM) project is a unique elevated light rail project that aims to provide an alternative mode of transportation to the residents of Accra, Ghana.

BIG identifies and invests in:
Oil, gas and uranium projects, moving them up the value curve with a view to partnering with major producers to bring them into production.
Power generation with a view to producing cost effective energy to facilitate the growth of developing economies.
Agriculture investments have the potential to alleviate poverty, support food security, create jobs and provide longterm suitable inflation-linked returns. Global population growth will drive investments into African agriculture where the majority of the world’s remaining arable land is situated.
The industrialisation of Africa is key to job creation. BIG is well positioned to support government’s Black Industrialists Policy by making investments into businesses seeking to transform and be supported by BIG’s advisory division.
