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 fifteen 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: fixed income, real estate, industrials, and healthcare industries. 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.
