what we look for

Seeking transformative solutions

We research early-stage companies with potentially high-impact solutions or unique breakthrough technology as a driver for growth. These companies are then assessed on whether they can ultimately offer progressive social or environmental disruption with real and attractive financial returns.

All our ESG measures are validated by third party evaluators and investments are aligned to the UN Sustainable Development Goals to drive trusted and tangible progress towards the world’s biggest challenges.

our esg criteria

Embedding ESG within

Studies are showing that companies with a high quality ESG profile are more likely to capture growth opportunities and mitigate risk. We combine material ESG information with traditional financial analysis to assess important indicators of a company’s growth potential and risk profile.

Our team actively engages with our portfolio companies to challenge them on a range of ESG issues, thus improving their performance and translating this into long term value.
