We founded Investmon to embrace this opportunity by bringing our expertise and investment to exciting businesses with high growth potential and the ability to disrupt new and difficult markets.
We are a family-owned investment company with a strong entrepreneurial mindset and a passion for businesses powered by innovation, opportunism and an appetite for risk.
We have a strong track record for harnessing innovation to build world class companies. It’s in our genes. It’s part of Maurice A. Amon’s heritage – beginning in the 1920s in Switzerland. Combining scientific knowledge with an instinct for enterprise, Maurice A. Amon’s grandfather and father went on to set up a small business, SICPA, which is now the world’s leading provider of high-performance security inks for banknotes and security documents that protect most of the world’s currencies today.
We know what it takes to succeed in dynamic emerging markets. Our history has placed us at the heart of nations as they’ve developed, giving us deep understanding of how their new economies work.
We’re now utilising this experience, and the vast global business network we’ve built, to help new ventures to prosper. As a family-owned business, we are personally invested. That means we have total dedication to building ideas we believe in and the agility to make decisions with pace in fast-moving markets.
We believe the best businesses in the future will match social value with financial success. That’s why our mission is to grow businesses that better serve local needs. And through that, drive real economic and social change. Globally.
