The most satisfying investments do not just yield high risk-adjusted returns, but are passionate, creative, and produce constant emotional dividends.
The quality and integrity of our network is essential to an enjoyable investment experience. Therefore, we operate a strict referral system as a private member's club.
We achieve the dual goals of confidentiality and broad distribution through a unique deal codification system. This enables the greatest efficiency at finding the most suitable investors and expert partners.
Our in-house legal technology helps streamline the investment cycle by
Analytic-driven matches of partners and opportunities;
Standardised modular contracts that enable fast and reliable deal structuring; and
End-to-end accounts management.
We are alpha-oriented risk-takers, but we aim to extract above-market marginal return per unit of risk taken. With local partners, we are best situated to appraise intrinsic value and source underpriced opportunities.
We target companies with proven cashflow. While our time horizon is generally long term and our deal structures are flexible, we ensure an unambiguous path to add strategic value and realise returns.
We believe owners and longtime management know their products best. Our goal is to collaboratively enhance growth potential or add specific business expertise.
We prefer simple and easily understandable business models, especially if the product / service can "sell itself". We also like owner-operators who have deep sector experience, rather than sector-agnostic managers.
Our investment process is rational and methodical, but our purpose isn't. We believe that great investments must start with passions, which will guide our value creation path.
Through our network of experts, we stay ahead of global geopolitical events and respond meaningfully through smart investments in local entities. We believe the best long term investments must be socially and environmentally beneficial. We satisfy these objectives and enhance returns by uncovering latent small-scale opportunities.
We are never foreign partners. We are always local partners. We celebrate the cross-fertilisation of cultures and bring people together through capital deployment.
We apply "second-level" thinking in identifying suitable investment angles, this means focusing on long term, structural impacts.
