A Differentiated Approach

Our Approach


Backed by agile capital, we are direct investors who can take a long-term view.


We know our business. We’ve been investing directly for over 25 years.  We specialize in health care, software, industrials and business services globally.


We are proactive owners and asset managers. We work in close collaboration with management teams to accelerate growth.  We take pride in adding value.


We embrace opportunities for organic growth and expansion, through operational improvements, long-term capital injections and M&A.

Sustainable Investing

We believe sustainable investing is part of our responsibility - we actively engage with management across our portfolio and use voting rights to support sustainable returns. We integrate Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) factors that are most relevant and material, alongside other factors, as part of our initial decision to invest and ongoing asset-management responsibility.
