The core

Our Investment Focus

Our primary investment focus is the hospitality sector in the Western Cape, with a niche focus on the boutique-style guesthouse segment. We are confident that the hospitality industry provides an opportunity for investors to invest in property-backed assets, therefore reducing risk and opening up leveraging opportunities through finance.

With numerous guesthouses that are either family-owned or owned by small groups of individuals, the guesthouse market is extremely fragmented. Many of these guesthouses will all need professional management, at some point, to ensure that they continue to operate at optimum capacity and remain efficiently structured, which can be provided by a dynamic and experienced group of professionals, such as ourselves.

With a guaranteed return of up to 18%, this is an attractive proposition to investors

With a minimum investment of R 500 000, GROUNDSTONE Capital offers potential investors the opportunity to acquire an equity share in a private limited company. This investment opportunity is well suited for investors who want to make their first step into the hospitality sector, and for seasoned owners wanting to take a step back.

GROUNDSTONE Capital sees this as a real opportunity to identify boutique-style guesthouses that will benefit from their investment and operational expertise, whilst delivering a good alternative return for investors.
