“People want to have a credible empowerment partner and they also want empowerment partners that add value and have capital available. From that perspective, we have all those ingredients.”
These ingredients combine to make ARC a very attractive proposition for a wide range of  rms who require a company shareholder with BEE credentials.

Despite only formally launching little over a year ago in April 2016, ARC has already
established an auspicious reputation thanks to its investments and the subsequent contributions made to a wide array of investee companies, along with its high- calibre management team.
