Our investment
approach

We apply structure to core investments, and pursue value-added and opportunistic investments, often with an element of contracted revenue that facilitates optimal capital structuring.

We see these opportunities in sectors including real estate, building services, smart technologies, alternative energy, infrastructure, and consumer finance – and we’re constantly looking for new and interesting market niches in which to invest.

An appetite for
innovation

We like deals that don’t fit an institutional mandate.

We’re constantly learning and finding new approaches. “Off-the-run” situations are our specialty.
