A developmental means for revitalizing the urban landscape
To create value through filling market gaps in the telecom sector
On transforming opportunity into value
Orascom Investment Holding (OIH) has been operating as a holding company with investments mainly in the telecom, media, and technology fields since its establishment in 2011. Tracing its roots back to Orascom Telecom, founded in 1997, OIH maintains the legacy of the region’s most successful, entrepreneurial, and pioneering telecoms operator.
As the industry matured, OIH has adopted a new direction to diversify its portfolio from a solely telecom and technology-based firm to an Investment Holding company operating in sectors where it sees opportunities for high growth, transformation and community impact. Along with promising financial returns, OIH targets projects and sectors that have a significant impact on the development of the countries it invests in.
Currently OIH is focusing its investment portfolio in Egypt and Africa on telecommunications and selective urban development projects. To streamline its operations, the company’s board has recently approved a restructuring by which a horizontal demerger split OIH into an entity specialized in financial services and another one operating in the other sectors of focus.
