Our company was founded by Eduardo Ferreira Simoes, the Managing Director. His first words were “vovô”, which is a shortening of “grandpa” in Portuguese. As he grew up, he learnt how to be entrepreneurial and logical from his father, Rui (son of Ferreira Simões), social and loyal from his mother, Sandra, disciplined, ethical and a perfectionist from his grandfather, and organised like his grandmother, Maria, wife to João.
As a small firm in the ubiquitous Finance Industry, and the other Industries we are tackling on the side (such as e-commerce), we understand that we might not have the most competitive offers out there. However, with our forward-thinking attitude, fresh ideas and continuous infrastructure development we believe that we provide outstanding value to our customers and will continue to do so.
Established in 2020, Ferreira Simoes Enterprises is a start-up company that honours the heritage of João Manuel Ferreira Simões, the grandfather of the founder, Eduardo Ferreira Simões. Better known as Ferreira Simões, he was a prominent journalist in Lourenço Marques (now Maputo), where he was the Founder and President of the Journalists Syndicate of Mozambique.
Ferreira Simões was a loving grandfather, instilling a lot of values in Eduardo – from perfectionism, to discipline. This is utterly illustrated by Eduardo’s interest in Finance, Entrepreneurship, Calligraphy, and Art – all of which require attention to detail and dedication.
After the end of the Portuguese colonies in Africa, Ferreira Simões, like all other Portuguese nationals living in the colonies, lost every possession he had, and had to start from scratch in Portugal. His legacy was ultimately eradicated by disagreements within the media industry. Nonetheless, we esteem João F.S.' character.
