Our investments span a wide range of industries around the world in established and growth-oriented businesses alike. Playing a vital role in helping companies realize their growth potential, we uncover value by identifying great companies and enhancing their performance by providing patient capital and operating support to strong management teams. Our approach helps our portfolio companies grow core businesses, launch new initiatives, make transformative acquisitions and upgrade technologies and systems to support their long-term strategy.
We strive to create value by investing in great businesses where our capital, strategic insight, global relationships and operational support can drive transformation that unlocks the company’s potential. In addition to benefiting our investors, the improvements in growth and global competitiveness benefit workers, communities and other stakeholders.
We are patient investors who practice the art of the long view, and are committed to achieving the best long-term outcomes for our businesses and our investors.
Our investment approach is based on a disciplined due diligence process that measures risk while identifying the catalysts for increased value. We purposefully engage only in friendly transactions and work with talented management teams to achieve transformative results. Our specialized Portfolio Operations Group helps to maximize value by improving processes across varied elements of a business’s operations.
The returns that these investments earn for our investors – pension funds, academic and charitable institutions, governments and other institutions, as well as retail investors – help to secure and grow the assets needed to support retirees and fund essential programs.
We are constantly looking for situations where we see something, or we are able to add value in a way that our competitors don’t. Our people feel the obligation to go out there and find special situations where we can intervene to drive change.
Pro-active, targeted sourcing
Sector-based, theme-driven deal sourcing is the primary responsibility and mandate of our investment professionals. We aim to source high-quality and proprietary investment opportunities by proactively developing and leveraging strong relationships with companies and key deal intermediaries. At regular pipeline meetings with sector teams, we review potential opportunities and determine what resources – both internal and external – are best suited to pursue those opportunities.
In determining value for new investments, we focus on a business’s current outlook and judge the predictability of that outlook over time, while also factoring in what we can do for the business to drive even better outcomes after our acquisition.
Transformational operating improvements
We actively target companies in which significant value can be created through clear strategic and operational change, and created our Portfolio Operations Group to provide hands-on support to help our portfolio companies become more productive, efficient and valuable. Once a company joins the portfolio, we help management craft a plan to reach their full potential over the long term, and provide assistance as they put this plan into practice.
Our investments in fixed income reflects our core strategy of capital preservation and limitation of portfolio volatility. These strategies provide flexibility to form part of an overall solution or as part of a reduced-risk growth portfolio. Central to multi-strategy fixed income strategies is capital preservation and limitation of drawdowns.
We invest in a wide variety of fixed income instruments spanning from the lowest risk instruments such as short-term Treasury bills or certificates of deposits in A rated reputable banks to relatively higher yield government and corporate debt with investment grade ratings.
The main aim of the fixed income allocations is to provide steady income for the overall portfolio and not so much capital appreciation. For that reason we give preference for high quality and short maturity instruments. Overall fixed income provides the solid foundation of our portfolio around which we develop our allocations in equities, PE and alternatives.
Blue Chip Equity
For a truly diversified portfolio we emphasize the need for blue chip large cap equities around the world but mainly in the US. Our investments in blue chip equity comprises only a small part of the portfolio but provides high dividend yields and with careful research and stock allocation they are also a source of capital appreciation and growth to the portfolio. Generally blue chip investments have the following characteristics:
• Have an established record of stable earning power over several decades.
• Boast an long record of uninterrupted dividend payments.
• Yield high dividends at a rate equal to or greater than the rate of inflation.
• Enjoy high returns on capital
• Possess a rock-solid balance sheet and income statement
• Regularly repurchase stock when the share price is attractive relative to owner earnings;
• Are substantially larger than the typical corporation, often ranking among the largest enterprises in the world.
We actively follows market conditions and economic cycles to rotate investments across economic sectors which in our view are poised for a more robust and stable performance.
