What We Do
We invest in people first, not companies.
We look for growing people and businesses that are transforming sectors. It is imperative that each investment that we make, first of all matches with our values of balance, alignment and impact, whilst achieving significant cultural, commercial and social outcomes.
We know we can’t make change happen by ourselves. We work with all kinds of partners all over the world, who have in common the drive to improve how the world works. We bring together our ever growing eco-system of trusted partners to work alongside our investments to make change happen.
Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much
– Helen Keller

The essence of strategy is choosing what not to do.
