We seek to add value to the companies or projects we invest in through our relationships with leading local and central government, our network of specialist advisors and through sector knowledge.
We believe in investing in companies and projects with a proven and sustainable business model. We also believe in developing an in-depth knowledge of the market. That is why we have focused on a few selected numbers of well defined emerging territories. We have dedicated significant time and resources to develop a deep understanding of our target markets.
We regularly travel to the region and conduct extensive face-to-face meetings with company management, as we believe this is the best way to learn about a company's strategy, leadership and its competitive advantages.
Type of investment
We will invest in: -
Active investors, we frequently seek representation on the Board of Directors. The seat(s) held usually include one of our industry advisors who provide active guidance and support, drawing on their wealth of sector and business knowledge. We leverage our industry contacts and corporate finance and other skills to assist portfolio companies with their development and exit strategies.
During a financing we will take the role of lead financer. However for smaller companies we prefer not to take more than 50% stakes. We believe in building value together with founder investors and have considerable experience in co-investment with other added value investors and management.
