Nozala Women Investments
Kyocera Document Solutions, headquartered in Osaka, Japan, is a leading manufacturer of document imaging solutions and document management systems. Nozala Investments held 16% of Kyocera through a transaction concluded in 2009. Nozala Women Investments acquired 35% of Kyocera in Q4 2018 under a new empowerment transaction.
We pride ourselves in the active management of a diversified portfolio of listed and unlisted investments over the last 25 years – since the restructuring in 2020, the assets that remain in the portfolio have been successfully manged by Nozala Women on behalf of Nozala Investments.
We drive social impact in our communities as ESG (Environmental, Sustainability and Governance) investing is integrated in our ownership and our strategy and we aim to embrace social and environmental issues into existing business models or transforming them altogether with the underlying rationale that running a responsible business will drive better investment outcomes in the long run – and that it's possible for corporations to be successful and make profit, but still do good in the world.
Nozala Women sees impact as a mass movement embracing social, economic and political upliftment for previously disadvantaged people. In addition to our impact investing, 40% of our shareholders include not for profit and public benefit organisations like Nozala Trust, National Movement of Rural Women, Muthande Society for the Aged, and Ijelo Labafazi
