We invest in established companies, which have a profitable track record and are looking for growth capital.

creating value

One of the key focus areas of our investments is to create and enhance stakeholder value.

Given our long-term approach to investing, we remain singularly focused on transforming businesses with an aim towards sustained value creation for all stakeholders of the organization. We aim to achieve this through:

Transformational Strategy
Transformational Strategy

Identifying a transformational strategy is pivotal to creating business value. This may include executing a new business model, re-engineering and implementing a new operating model, repositioning a business within its industry, growing a business by acquisition or diversifying into new markets. Our extensive analysis of macro trends, supported by strategic insights and operational experience of our management molds our investments into leaders in their industries.

High Touch Management
High Touch Management

We adopt a “high-touch” management approach to strategy and performance and - in particular where sustained leadership is required. We actively support revenue enhancement and cost reduction to invigorate value-creation. This often includes leveraging our industry knowledge, accessing our global network of resources and assisting in the recruitment of seasoned operating executives. We are thus able to build efficient and effective teams that can lead our companies into the future.

transformational capital

We invest significantly in our businesses to transform them. We call it “transformational capital” because capital and resources are used to take the business to the next level. We create and leverage innovative financing structures to give us a competitive advantage. We develop new capital programmes to improve performance and grow businesses organically. Where required, we also support scalable platforms for businesses to grow rapidly through acquisitions.

sustainable growth

Our investment approach is founded on delivering sustainable growth. Value cannot be created overnight. We embrace a patient approach to investing, and we encourage our portfolio companies to invest in future competitiveness, improve operating efficiencies and/or make strategic acquisitions where required to achieve sustainable growth to maximize stakeholder value.
