our approach


Our Capital platform primarily creates control-oriented private equity investments. We pursue opportunities across geographies and specialise in sectors where we have developed unique expertise over time. These include impact investing, venture capital and private equity.

Our investments help support the development of innovative technologies and new business models, as
well as promote sustainable economic growth
and development.

Our goal is to address pressing social and environmental challenges in the communities we serve, such as climate change, poverty and inequality

We are determined to find a balance between financial return and positive impact, and investing in businesses that have the potential to create lasting change
in the world.

the investment platform


The financial well-being of our people, stakeholders and shareholders are important to us and this governs our investment policies. As a fiduciary to investors and a leading provider of financial technology solutions, our clients turn to us for the solutions they need when planning their financial goals.

Sharing ideas and intellectual capital across the firm provide us with distinctive insight, and this cross-platform leverage enables us to bring the right capital solutions to compelling opportunities.

More than 75% of our partners have made investments across more than one platform. We call this approach “shared teams and shared themes” and we’ve built it into our culture by having open investment committees that can be attended by professionals from all platforms, products and levels of seniority.
