Atlas Mara was founded in late 2013 by Bob Diamond, former CEO of Barclays plc and Founder and CEO of Atlas Merchant Capital LLC, and Dubai-based African entrepreneur, Ashish J Thakkar, Founder of Mara Group Holdings Limited.

The company was listed on the London Stock Exchange following a successful $325 million IPO and both Diamond and Thakkar serve as Non-Executive Directors on the board. Since its founding, Atlas Mara has acquired, by way of five transactions, control of (or significant stakes in) banking operations in seven sub-Saharan African countries: Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Tanzania, Mozambique, Rwanda and Nigeria.
"While there have been significant innovations in the provision of financial services in sub-Saharan Africa, we believe that there is a substantial opportunity to leverage technology further, migrating from mobile money transfer to mobile banking and the provision of other value-added services," notes Thakkar.

Given this recognition, we expect to invest (both in terms of financial and human capital) in technology and will seek partnerships and alliances in order to leverage complementary competencies," he adds.
