Respect for Capital
We believe capital survival is a prerequisite to capital growth. However, our entrepreneurial mindset and proprietary capital’s flexibility affords us to screen a variety of opportunities and take calculated risks.
With stewardship of wealth at the core and capital being scarce, we strive for optimal diversification. This enables us to tap into variety of economic sector, geographies and asset classes. We are aware that diversification won’t compensate for risks we don’t understand
We operate with transparency and our actions are consistent with our words. We expect the same from investment partners. Successful partnerships demand culture compatibility. We value partners who have demonstrated alignment of interest with honourable actions
We do not have a defined time period to deploy and return capital, giving us the ability to take longer term views. We think like owners rather than investors. When we find a right combination, our holding period is forever.

Capital Market Investments
We invest globally across public equities and fixed income securities in developed, emerging and frontier markets. The investments are done both directly and through partnership with established fund managers. We are patient investors with an aim for long‑term value creation.
We invest in top tier private equity fund managers across various strategies from growth equity and debt to distressed and secondaries. The idea is to generate higher absolute return which are uncorrelated with capital markets. We understand the J-curve effect and aim to capture the illiquidity premium.
We invest globally across real estate and infrastructure assets through direct ownership and via funds. Real asset portfolio not only serves as an inflation hedge but also offers value unlocking opportunities. So, we look for total returns combining regular income and capital growth.
