ESG is in our DNA
We believe bold commercial ambitions and a conscience are good bedfellows. We are globally recognised for our approach to environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations across our business and those we invest in. The proactive management of ESG results in positive and inclusive company cultures with higher employee engagement and productivity as well as better financial returns. Doing the right thing isn’t just good for society and the environment, but business too, and our B Corp accreditation proves this.
Value that is real, not engineered
Building businesses of real value takes partnerships that bring together different talents to create something greater than the sum of their parts. We get under the skin of our investments. We roll up our sleeves and get stuck in, enhancing value by developing talent and sharpening operations, whilst unlocking digitalisation and masterminding strategic merger and acquisition strategies.
Investing in relationships
The building blocks of any successful business relationship are the same as personal ones: respect, commitment and trust. We listen. Our persistence, patience, confidence and familiarity mean that we can speak frankly and openly about key issues. It’s the quality of our relationships that determines the quality of our investments.
