The National Investment Company of Cameroon (SNI), a public capital company with the State as sole shareholder, aims to mobilize and guide national savings and any other national and international financial means. In view of its multiple facets, the SNI positions itself in the Cameroonian environment as: a society that supports all the strategies and policies of the Cameroonian government in economic, industrial and social matters, but whose operating rules are those of a anonimous society. In addition, it is subject to ordinary law obligations; a venture capital company which takes equity stakes in new or existing businesses with good commercial and financial prospects; a promoter of productive projects which initiates projects, studies them, sets them up in joint-venture with technical, financial or commercial, national or international partners previously identified; a financier who supports economically viable and financially profitable projects by granting loans and / or advances to shareholders’ current accounts; an instrument to support the private sector and a facilitator who welcomes and supports investors, technical and financial partners who request it, in the implementation of their projects.
The National Investment Company intends to position itself as the benchmark in terms of wealth creation for the economic development of Cameroon.
It is in this perspective that it has engaged for a few years a vast process of revival, diversification and modernization of its activities. This process started in September 2003 was consolidated by the development of the SNI Business Plan for the period 2005-2010. It is a management instrument intended to guide all of the company’s actions over a period of five (05) years and ultimately aims to position SNI at the heart of all investment activities in Cameroon.
To boost this new founding impetus, a strong option was taken in favor of the redefinition of the corporate identity of SNI which resulted in the re-profiling of a new Visual Identity conforming to: the entrepreneurial vision of SNI, which is that of “positioning itself as the benchmark in terms of wealth creation for the economic development of Cameroon”; SNI’s statutory mission, namely: “to promote high-yield productive investment operations in all sectors of national and international economic activity”.
