Our Firm

About Us

Castle Holding is a small to medium investment firm founded in 2007.

Our businesses are diversified across a wide spectrum of regions, industries, and asset classes, giving us the expertise and access to resources in order to take advantage of investment opportunities.

Our purpose is to invest wisely and create value on behalf of an array of global investors. Good investments result from sound decision-making; and, good businesses are built with a commitment to operational excellence.

Castle Holding uses its network, deep industry knowledge to create and execute a customised value creation plan for each of our investments.

We aim to generate attractive investment returns by following a patient and disciplined approach, employing high-quality people, pursuing the highest standards of excellence and aligning our interests with those of all our investment partners.

A liable investing methodology, which calls for long-term collaboration and commitment amongst all participants to deliver a successful outcome, is imbedded in the philosophy of Castle Holding.

Our Approach


Castle Holding employs a long-established strategy of operationally intensive, sector-focused investing across North Africa, Middle East, and Europe. We pursue to invest in well-positioned companies with operational and strategic improvement potential and partner with management teams to create value by driving revenue and earnings growth.


Castle Holding strives to invest in a cross-section of industrial and service businesses, which typically exhibit the following attributes:

  • Sound Business Strategies
  • Strong Market Positions and Product Portfolio
  • Stable Cash-flows
  • Talented and Experienced Management Teams
  • High Returns on Internally Invested Capital
  • Attractive Prospects for Organic or Acquisition-Based Growth


We typically take a majority shareholding in a company, as our experience shows that we can support the implementation of the value creation plan more effectively if we have control and are an active owner. However, we will also consider minority ownership where we are working with like-minded shareholders.


We are an active investor who seeks to build a collaborative relationship with management teams. We typically sit on the company’s board and are involved in developing and overseeing strategy. We do not take part in day-to-day operations, however, as we believe that is the role of the leadership team.

Working with management, we develop a value creation plan that identifies specific actions to help a company realise its full potential. We bring to the partnership sector knowledge and often first-hand experience working with businesses in similar situations.

Through our international networks, we offer access to market intelligence, industry experts and general business contacts that can support a company’s development.

Culture and Values

We are innovators, pioneers and problem solvers; we are your partner. We work in partnership with whom we do business and maintain a shared sense of ownership across the firm.

We have a very clear understanding of the Firm’s purpose, where and how we will compete, and what capabilities are required to win. At the same time, we are committed to be the best partners that we can be.

Our professionals are united by a shared sense of purpose and the deep values that inform the commitments we make to our commercial partners and the communities in which we operate.

Castle Holding's successful model is a blend of investment selections, tactical development, excellence in operation and a dedicated ownership approach.

Education has its price everywhere—but the only thing more expensive than investing in education is not investing in education. Inadequate education produces high costs for society in terms of public spending, crime, health, and economic growth. No country can afford to leave too many of its children behind and not to help them achieve the competencies needed for a self-fulfilled life in economic independence.
