Our Business Model
ZCCM-IH occupies a very unique and strategically advantageous position as an investment holding company, as it holds key minority interests across mining and energy industries in Zambia. It also has significant investments in diversified energy entities, gemstones, real estate and financial services.
Currently, ZCCM-IH’s portfolio consists of five wholly owned subsidiaries and fifteen investee companies.
In our 2018-2023 Strategic plan, ZCCM-IH has prioritised the generation of consistent and predictable income through investments in brownfield and Greenfield projects; and ensuring value is extracted from existing legacy and post legacy portfolio companies through driving efficiencies and participation in primarily the mine supply value chain.
Commodity diversification is aimed at tapping into new sources of consistent and stable income within mining and mining related sectors, while reducing the risk profile of our Portfolio. This is in an effort to deliver compelling long-term returns and to continue to maximize shareholder value. New investments to drive diversification will focus in key sectors and businesses which include mining supply chain, energy, value addition, manufacturing, precious metals, among others. ZCCM-IH is actively seeking strategic partnerships to develop and exploit opportunities in these sectors to achieve above-market returns
