Investment Criteria

Honest and capable management team: We look for management team with integrity and a proven track record. We prefer to invest in family-owned businesses as these businesses are often prudently run with the long term interest of stakeholders in mind.

A market segment with growth potential: We look for businesses operating in a sector with significant potential for growth as a result of technological, social and demographic changes. We also like businesses with a regional presence.

Proprietary know-how, technology, distribution channel and strong branding: While no business is perfect, we look for companies with a competitive advantage in technology, distribution channel, branding or even unique insights into consumer behaviour.

Agility and adaptability: We look for companies that demonstrate an ability to innovate new products, services and distribution channels in response to changing customer behaviours and environment.
