INVESTING FOR IMPACT
Our investment philosophy is guided by the belief that investing in commercially viable companies and logistic projects can provide investors superior risk adjusted returns, as well as generate sustainable, long-term positive impact. Local partnerships, local expertise, networks and experience are key to help grow businesses. Local managers with knowledge of their markets, politics and economies are best placed to help us deal with these risks. On the ground, they are in a better position to manage any issues at investee companies.
INVESTING IN LONG-TERM RELATIONSHIPS
Strong networks and deeply entrenched relationships are key to our investment approach.
INVESTING FOR ACTIVE OWNERSHIP
Once invested, we closely monitor investee company progress, as well as favor further growth within portfolio companies by sourcing and executing follow-on investments. Even after a company’s day-to-day operations have been built out or optimized, and the management team solidified, we will remain significantly involved in major capital and investment decisions, and actively pursue incremental investment opportunities on behalf of and in partnership with the company’s.
INVESTING FOR DIVERSIFICATION
Within our mandate, we are keen to develop a balanced portfolio, diversified by country, region, sector and vintage.
EXTENSIVE DUE DILIGENCE
In order to enhance our ability to make better investment decisions and deliver superior investment returns, we seek to identify and mitigate the various risks arising. Investment decision-making process usually takes careful consideration of the broader political and economic macro risks, as well as project-specific micro-risks. Attention will be devoted to team quality, stability and abilities, financial performance and pipeline, potential value-add from strategic and operational active ownership, expected development impact, and approach to Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) matters.
We are committed to responsible investment, specifically integrating Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) matters in investment decision-making and ownership practices. Responsible investment not only contributes to sustainable development in target markets, but also provides a way to enhance the investment process by assisting to identify and manage risks, as well as to create value.
