    Description:

    Amzak Capital Management is the private investment firm of the Kazma family. Originally from Canada but based in the U.S. since 1979, the Kazma's got their start in the cable television industry. Under the leadership of Gerry and his son Mike, the Kazma's developed and operated cable systems in Canada and the U.S. until 1992, when they entered the Latin American markets, with operations in Aruba, Venezuela, Trinidad & Tobago and Martinique. In 1997, they built and operated Amnet, Central America's largest cable television / triple play company, which was sold to Millicom International Cellular S.A. in 2008. Over the past ten years, Amzak has transitioned from a family business primarily focused on the cable industry into an institutional investment manager with an investment perspective across a broad range of industries and strategies. Today, Amzak focuses on four major areas: private equity, fixed income, real estate and healthcare. To a lesser extent, the firm also invests in public equity and, very selectively, alternative investments. These investments tend to be either opportunistic or complementary to one of its four investment groups. Amzak seeks to invest $5 million to $50 million of equity in companies located in the U.S., South America, Central America and the Caribbean. Amzak's investment activities in healthcare are managed by Majalin LLC, an independent firm led by Joyce Erony and Anders Hove. Amzak Health invests across the healthcare sector including therapeutics, devices, diagnostics and services. Amzak seeks to invest a minimum of $5 million for venture capital deals and up to $75 million or more for growth equity transactions.
