We deploy flexible capital in compelling private companies across a variety of strategies and time horizons. Through growth equity, structured equity, buyouts or co-investing with other top-tier partners, we focus on positions where we can play a larger role in building stronger companies. We provide the capital and support to help high-performing management teams and boards grow and become leading global franchises.
Creating value through more responsible businesses
We believe that integrating environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors into our investment decisions and backing companies to act responsibly will create greater value for our members. Strong ESG practices and active management have long been at the heart of what we do and will continue to support our commitment to achieve a net-zero investment portfolio by 2050.
Commitment beyond capital
We take a disciplined approach to value creation to help good companies become great from day one. Along with our financial investment, we tap into our expertise and extensive global platform of experienced business leaders, managers and operating professionals to support our portfolio companies through the operational optimisation, regional expansion, acquisition acceleration, or business re-orientation that will unleash their potential.
Flexibility to shape exceptional companies
We can provide the right capital to meet the specific needs of the businesses we support, and those of our partners. The long term nature of our mission enables us to invest for a spectrum of duration, including over the long term where others can't. We are able to back firms without the pressure to fundraise or exit positions, allowing us to invest for the right time frame for our investments to grow and realize their strategic goals.
