In the ancient Bono Kingdom of Ghana, King Adinkra created artistic symbols to represent values and concepts he wanted to transmit to his people. The Tabono symbol is an oar or paddle in motion, and draws on the metaphor of the coordination, strength and unity required to power a rowing boat. The Tabono has since become a West African symbol for unity of purpose in pursuit of a goal.
The Tabono symbol’s African flavour and parallel to our personal style of equity partnership makes it a fitting name for our company. Based in South Africa and having done several deals on the continent, we have developed an appetite for a challenge. We relish the complexity of the mining, industrial, logistics and service industries and find it meaningful to work together with all stakeholders for a win/win outcome that allows a business to reach its full potential. So if you want a partner with the know-how and sheer willpower to go the distance - trust Tabono.
The magic of Tabono Investments lies in the powerful combination of the integrated and complementary basket of sectors where it has deep roots.
