Ultimus Holdings restates commitment to harnessing economic opportunities in Africa

Ultimus Holdings, a pan-African investment company looking to expand its investment portfolios across real estate and construction, services, healthcare, consumer and industrial goods, financial services and ICT, has restated its commitment to ensuring sustainable development in Africa by investing heavily in different countries within the continent.

This was part of the submission made by Ifeanyi Chukwuma Odii, president/CEO of Ultimus Holdings, at a media parley by the company held in Lagos.

Speaking at the parley, Odii explained that the company is quite confident that Africa holds great potential for economic growth and as such would continue to play a leading role in harnessing the opportunities that could make the continent an economic superpower.

“We are quite optimistic about African economies given the abundance of available opportunities. As a business, we would continue to explore different areas in the rapidly evolving growing economies, not only to make a statement as a brand but to contribute to further expansion. Moving forward, we would be making massive investments in sub-Saharan Africa that are targeted at addressing the peculiar needs of the African market,” he said.

The company is strategically seeking opportunities for new businesses in strategic sectors, which would guarantee huge returns on investment while also acquiring businesses that visibly deliver solid value for its esteemed customers, he said.

“Currently, Africa remains a strategic market for our business. We cannot afford to relax because we are aware of the impact significant investments would have on business growth and socio-economic development in Africa as a whole. We believe investment in critical sectors of the economy would not only create jobs for the youths but also help to improve the economic prosperity of the continent as a whole,” he said.

He called on the government in different economies within the continent to continue to support its expansion plan by creating the enabling environment for business to thrive.
