Great things start because people want to change the world, not make a fast buck!
Changing the world begins with changing the mindset and being open minded, curious. Today we must be and think global as resources, foods, space are scattered and limited and climate is shared by everybody on Earth.
Innovation is to be curious, creative, to think outside the box and the routine, the standards, in short, it is to invest!
Investing is creating value.
It takes a minimum of time because you have to search, discover, try, test, check, learn, optimize before you can develop.
The emerging regions, young, are more open, are accessible with comparatively much lower means and at the same time offer greater potential.
Provide innovative investment
To people, organization we want to help to live their passion, to take risks, to create and to develop value,
To investors we want to offer opportunities to invest in alternative assets, tangible assets, far from the volatility of financial and conventional products, and put the world at their fingertips with new markets.
To support them in the long term by bringing them our own contributions, know-how, experiences and all the tools and means necessary and adapted to the needs and objectives of each.
Only direct investment to avoid "black boxes" and third parties to hold full and direct control of day to day operation. We want to have in-depth knowledge and understanding to be able to feel the markets and changes. That's mandatory for us to limit risks, make the best decisions and to optimize capital invested. An investment, goal, context, people, market... change over the time and we must be able to adapt and evolve.
Except for specific projects, specific investments at the request of a client or a particular group, we always invest ourselves alongside the investors to whom we propose the opportunities. Thus risks and interests are always shared.
We only work and offer our own products, projects, assets and services, with our own means and tools, to the exclusion of all others.
We are always careful to diversify geographically, by type of asset, by market, by industry, and our investments in companies and in real estate are only by private equity.
We invite investors to bet on a market and a country only after we have practiced ourselves and therefore acquired a good local knowledge through a local presence.
We attach great importance to transparency and share information in real time between all actors involved in the value chain, through a global and shared management and communication platform, using modern technologies including digitalization, automated procedures, reporting and dashboards and this on a global level. It is a guarantee of efficiency and trust. But of course, the privacy, the confidentiality, the tightness between the different elements, the different structures, the different operations is guaranteed by separate and specific dedicated instances of the tools and data protection.
Small is beautiful, more efficient, more agile and more adapted especially in emerging countries.
With a reduced capital investment (USD or EUR), one can invest in proportionally larger operations in emerging and developing countries. This provides free financial leverage and further diversifies and thus decreases and limits overall risk, provides more flexibility, especially in case of limited and urgent need for liquidity.
Do not use financial leverage, even cheap, because it impacts the net return, and it also implies a cash and timing constraint that may run counter to the performance and the interests of investors.
Only invest in equities of small, mid-cap and private (unlisted) companies. more stable over time because the founder is more involved and motivated, especially in case of difficulties. We avoid any pressure from the financial markets to decide and manage with a long-term, a social vision.
Our strategy is clearly capital gain driven.
Basically our decisions are based on macroeconomic analysis.
Life cycles of assets are not always consistent with the wishes and flexibility needs of investors. This is why the offer we made to investors is as much as possible decoupled from the life cycles of the projects and the underlying assets. It is especially important when the assets, the portfolio is very diversified. Our investment vehicles are open (evergreen) with a minimum commitment period for each subscription.
We invest in what is fundamental for humans: real estate, agri-food, energy, health, natural resources, education, new technologies, transport and logistics.
