Identify. Invest. Transform. Exit
We prize intellectual capital as the driving force for creating and delivering superior economic value. In all 4 steps of our approach, we place strong emphasis on the key success factors of each step.
Our sensing and identification of investment opportunities is founded on 3 strengths. Firstly, our global presence and extended network allows us to “scan” both advanced and emerging markets as well as off and on market deals from where to source deals/ opportunities. Secondly, the breadth of our business activities in Real estate, Private Equity, Venture Capital and Financial advisory enables us to look for many potential opportunities. Lastly, we conduct rigorous analyses initially from an outside-in perspective that we then follow up with extended analysis from interviews and financials.
For our investing activities, we combine own funds, our investor network but also selectively tap into capital markets depending on size and type of deal. We always carefully design the optimal financial structure drawing upon the arsenal of available financial instruments. Before realizing any investments, we ensure that our deals are aligned with our strategy and investors profile and objectives.
Our operational and financial expertise enables us to execute well our investment strategy. Ranging from financial re-engineering to operational transformation and further M&A activity (when needed), we realize synergies and unlock hidden value in companies and ventures. Our approach entails leveraging existing company strengths but also radically changing course or divesting parts of the business when this is required.
After helping our companies grow and realize their ambitions, the next step is to exit our investments and generate returns to our investors. Before realizing an investment, we always have a clear exit strategy that will be applicable in the mid-term.
