40 years of Success

Our method for selecting new investments is diligent and intuitive

We work with businesses that have given success their own unique definition – whether that be through the standards they have, the approach they take, or their own method of driving society towards a sustainable future. Most importantly, we invest in great management teams that echo our own values of integrity and respect.

Creating positive change

We invest in what we believe in – businesses with their own unique potential. We take our successes (and our losses) in our stride, and are constantly on the lookout for new and innovative opportunities.

We have a growing passion for businesses achieving positive change and are very interested to collaborate with such ventures – but the trajectory of our investments is broad.
