We are an investment company established in 1995 in Rwanda, initially under the name Tristar Investments Limited, before rebranding to our current name in 2009. The company was founded to meet challenges of economic recovery and take advantage of growth opportunities in a virgin environment. The founders were among the pioneers of Rwanda’s private sector and took on the task of jump-starting the heavily dilapidated private enterprise.
Having made a few good investments, the company earned decent returns that were reinvested to create what is now the biggest investment company in the country. The company’s motto - Create Wealth, Improve Lives – has spurred the growth of the business whose choice of investments are determined by the opportunity to make a significant impact on the socioeconomic landscape accompanied by the opportunity to venture into unexplored sectors with high returns in the developing economy.
