WHO WE ARE
AND WHAT WE DO.

Niveus Investments is a focused investment entity holding three principal unlisted investments across a diversified range of sectors. Our intention is to focus on growing and fully developing the existing investments. Some of these are start-ups, turnarounds and some are businesses with a mature business model but have significant growth potential. We will also opportunistically pursue other investments with asymmetrical risk/reward profiles where we can leverage our management expertise and experience. No specific industries or business profiles are targeted.

The highest peaks of mountain ranges are snow white (Niveus). Through our investment philosophies we aim to achieve outcomes that will reach these pinnacles.
