Partnership Approach to Investing
Our investment philosophy centres around thesis-based investing and partnering with leading experts in the sector. As sector specialists we understand the value our partners bring to our investment process and value creation. Our partners tend to be former founders and entrepreneurs, executive management and board representatives.
