About us

Started by Cobus Nel and Martin Van Vuuren, Eridanus is a niche investment company that provides investment opportunities in the agricultural sector.

Our philosophy

We believe in the simplicity of investing. Equally important is that you see your investment grow. By focusing on the agri industry, we deliver attractive financial returns, while also providing much needed investments in this key sector.

Long-term partnerships are essential to our success and we only consider those entities that are well-managed and have a sound track record with a history that extends over a decade. These partnerships enable us to make sound investments and contribute to the essential, sustainable food production sector. For food stability, invest in agriculture.
