About Us

Mapenzi Capital was founded by Joy Sinclair in February 2018. As a qualified attorney, conveyancer and notary with 11 years post articles experience (5 and a half of which were spent in the retail property asset management space) Joy currently delivers the professional services personally by leveraging the knowledge and experience gained in the corporate sector as lead of the in-house legal team at Capital Land Property Asset Management from March 2012 to mid October 2017. Capital Land was responsible for the assembly, growth and management of Synergy Income Fund Limited (Synergy) from date of listing in December 2011 until March 2015. Capital Land grew the Synergy portfolio from 3 properties valued at R260 million prior to listing in December 2011 to 15 properties valued at R2.4 billion with a GLA of 199 996m2 in March 2015. In October 2014 Capital Land was awarded the property asset management contract for the Futuregrowth Community Property Composite (the Comprop Fund). At that stage the Comprop Fund comprised of 18 retail shopping centres situated in the Western Cape, Eastern Cape, Free State, Kwazulu-Natal, Gauteng and Mpumalanga valued at approximately R2.1 billion with a GLA of 218 691m2.

Construct deals, produce reports and offer advice that is easy for our clients to understand but detailed enough to guard against legal and operational risk.
