After setting up markets in 1993, Pangea Securities became the driving force behind privatisation in Zambia before it evolved into an entrepreneurial giant that addressed and captured market opportunities.
Whilst the company is best placed to advise corporates and entrepreneurs looking to enter or expand into Zambia, the financial advisory has also taken advantage of gaps in the market.
We’ve also been opportunistic. Where there’s interesting gaps in the market – we have invested our own capital and exited at the right time.— Ceasar Siwale, Chief Executive Officer at Pangaea Securities Limited
Responsible for bringing international brands such as Mugg & Bean and Pizza Hut into the Zambian market, CEO Ceaser Siwale says that whilst local companies have tried to create domestic brands, the middle income group “want to be associated with an international brand.”
His advice to both entrepreneurs and corporates is to scale in order to have access to consistency.
