Welcome to our website, which for some of you may the first point of contact with us.

Suez Capital is an independent company that is absolutely committed to taking a long term view and building our business on great relationships. I believe this approach is what our stakeholders demand and truly makes us stand out from the crowd.

Since its inception in the early 1980s, our Group has worked hard to establish a unique and integrated regional presence in Africa. This region is our home. Our people reflect the cultures, histories and capabilities that exist here. We believe we have a part to play in looking after our home, this principle turns into action through how we treat our staff and our environment and through our community outreach work.

We operate today on a world-class infrastructure that allows us to leverage economies of scale and act nimbly on real-time information, to the benefit of both our customers and our technology partners.

Our strength also lies in our wide ranging expertise, our commitment to customer service and our belief in working with our communities and stakeholders to balance meeting the needs of today’s economies in transition – delivering housing, infrastructure and industrial projects – with the concerns and priorities of a modern society. As a company we are enduring and I believe that this is based on the fact that we strive to always deliver on our promises. This makes us a proactive and trusted partner.

Between the 25th and 29th of March, Suez Capital Ltd sponsored the RC44 regatta. RC44 Class is one of the most competitive, highly technological class. With its strict one-design format, it is as level a playing field as you could wish to find, in international yacht racing. With the team owners at the helm, and the pros calling tactics, the fleet racing events are very short, intense and action-packed races with a target time of 40 minutes, with boats frequently separated by just seconds at the finish line.
