The Competitive Edge
While we consider financial engineering and rigorous financial planning and monitoring absolutely essential, we know the real differentiator and the best way to build shareholder value is to combine an experiential understanding of the industry sector with exceptional execution capabilities. We believe that getting portfolio companies to the “next level” requires strategy, financial controls and a varsity leadership team. That’s why we make no passive investments. The litmus test in making investment decisions is whether we want to actively partner with a company to scale its platform.
We require that our portfolio of companies meet the highest ethical standards. Environmental, social and good corporate governance (ESG) are major considerations when making investment decisions.
