Our investment team professionals are experienced in active and value-add portfolio management, with strong track records that enable value creation and avoid first-time errors. To support our portfolio, we take a NED position on the companies’ boards, as well as an observer role, which allows us to bring in area-specific experts as needed to support the company’s development.

By selecting sustainable development as our investment theme, we address social and environmental challenges and partner with our portfolio to consistently improve their performance in this area. Through our award-winning Earth Dividend™ portfolio management tool, we seek to have a holistic overview of a portfolio company’s contribution across ESG and focus on the connection between positive impact and commercial value, ensuring continuous performance improvement.
